HAMMER’D STEEL


HAMMER’D STEEL

S.JENSEN © 2017

WALK’D IN SMILING

SHE SAW ME

GREETIN’ WITH

SPARKLIN’ EYES

SAYIN’ HOW ARE YOU

SIT ANY WHERE

I’LL SERVE YAH!

SITTIN’ AT THE TABLE

DRINKIN’ MY COFFEE

TRYIN’ NOT TO

STARE

WATCHIN’ THE TUBE

OFF AND ON

AND THE

PASSERBY’S

SHE SAYS CAN I SIT

A BIT ACROSS

FROM ME

I SMILE SAYIN’

SURE HUN

YOU OK

YOU LOOK TIRED

SHE SAYS

SOMETIMES

I JUST WANT

TO SAY

FUCK IT ALL

I LOOK AT HER

SAYING WHATEVER IT

IS BOTHERIN’ YOU

KNOW THIS

KEEP YOUR HEAD UP

HANG IN THERE

CAUSE IT WILL

BE ALRIGHT

AND KNOW

YOU’ RE NOT MY

ONLY FRIEND

THAT’S SAID THAT

LATELY

TOO MANY HAVE

I LISTEN TO HER

TRY TO SAY

WHAT’S ON HER

MIND

BUT WORK CALLS

HER AWAY

SHE BRINGS ME MORE

COFFEE THEN

HER PHONE RINGS

ITS ANOTHER

MUTUAL FRIEND

SHE SAYS HANG ON

I FINISH MY THIRD

CUP OF COFFEE

AND REST

OF MY BREAKFAST

FOR LUNCH

WHEN I CAN

I TELL HER

THINGS GOING ON

IN MY LIFE

AND HOW I SOLD

ANOTHER PIECE OF ARTWORK

THINKING LATER

AS SHE’S RINGIN’

ME OUT

I LEAVE NOT SAYIN’

A WORD

ABOUT WHAT’S

ON MY MIND

I SHOULD HAVE

SAID CALL ME

HERE’S MY

NUMBER

SO WE CAN CHAT

BETTER

AT A LATER

TIMEFRAME

BUT NOPE I

JUST WALK OUT

NOT THINKING

LATER I RUN

INTO THE FRIEND

THAT WAS ON THE PHONE

SHE SAID HER

CAR IS MESSED UP

AGAIN

AND THE ONE

I WAS GETTIN’

COFFEE WITH

WAS COMING TO

GET HER

I SAY HAVE

A GOOD DAY

AND HOPE IT ALL

WORKS OUT

TELL HER I SAID HI

AGAIN NOT

SAYING WHAT’S

ON MY MIND

I GO INSIDE

AND DO MY

SHOPPIN’

WITH BOTH ON

MY MIND

THEN I RUN

INTO ANOTHER

FRIEND

AT A PERFECT

MOMENT

SHE SAYS

YOU ALMOST FINISHED

I COULD GIVE

YOU A RIDE HOME

I AM GOING

THAT DIRECTION

I AM LIKE YES

THAT WOULD BE GREAT

I GET HOME

THINKING I

SHOULD SO FIND

A WAY

TO GET THE TIME

TO INVITE

MY FRIENDS

OVER FOR

SOME CHATTIN’

TIME AND COFFEE

WE NEVER GET

TO DO THAT MUCH

EVERYONE IS ALWAYS

ON THE GO

AND HERE I AM

ON THE TURTLE’S PACE

YET I AM ALRIGHT

IN COMPARISON

ROUGH TIMES

ALL AROUND

YOU NEVER KNOW

HOW YOU THINK

OH MY LIFE

SUCKS

OH I AM ACHING TODAY

BUT DOING OK

THEN SOMEONE

ELSE COMES ALONG

AND TELLS

YOU SOMETHING

ROUGHER

THAN WHATEVER

IT IS YOU ARE GOING

THROUGH

I FEEL PRETTY

BLESSED

WITH THE LITTLE

I HAVE

IT GETS ME BY

COULD BE BETTER

THEN I COULD

HELP MY

FRIENDS OUT MORE

FROM TIME

TO TIME

ITS LIKE

THE HAMMER HITTING

THE STEEL

EACH LEAVING

A MARK

YET WHEN ITS DONE

IT HAS THE

VERY COOL

AESTHETIC LOOK

TO IT

SO

I FEEL I AM NOW

THE HAMMER’D STEEL

AND

MY FRIENDS

ARE STILL

TAKING THE BANGS

TO REACH

THE SAME

SPOTS IN LIFE

WE ALL GET TIRED

WE ALL FEEL

THE SAME

YET WE ALL

DEAL WITH

EVERYTHING

LIFE THROWS

OUR WAY

IN DIFFERENT WAYS

YET WHEN WE

CAN WE ALL

COME TOGETHER

TO SUPPORT

EACH OTHER

WITH LITTLE

RANDOM ACTS

OF KINDNESS

CAUSE

THAT IS WHAT LIFE

IS ALL

ABOUT... =)
