    Another day same ol'sh#t
    My job stressing me I want to quit

    Tired of my ladies mouth
    Always questioning and throwing fits

    Tired of baby mama
    And all of her demands and her lists

    I can't hardly stand it all
    I am fed up, better yet, pissed!

    Constantly grinding my teeth
    Constantly, I am clinching my fist

    Where o' where do I find refuge
    It is my one simple wish

    Moments of youthful innocence
    And some moments of utter bliss

    They're moments I no longer know
    For me they no longer exsist

    Ugly days always in my face
    And puckering up for a kiss

    Sometimes the chaos just doesn't want to cease. You need some sort of peace, some sort of ease, even if it's just a momentary vacation envisioned in your mind. I'm sure many can relate to the frustration expressed so well in this piece. Nice to read something from you again.

    The way I see it, days are just what they are...Days, now what you make of each day, determines the ugly/beauty of it.
    this is a piece of work, wonderful flowing

    Hard hitting!
    and Awesome
    sometimes the
    most unpleasant things
    make for the most powerful poems
    one can definitely feel the
    fustration and anger stirring
    inside this piece raging
    to be set free...

    Nice work poet!
