Balancing Act

Written By: David Schabold

The world was created with certain balances in mind,
And people seem to think everything balances in time,
People are constantly trying to balance their lives,
Between work and play, delegating their time,
Our lives are just one big balancing act,
Forgive or forget who knows how we’ll react,
But one thing that always seems so askew,
Is should I keep…….Keep on loving you…..

Perhaps the most difficult balance in this world,
Is holding on or letting go of your girl,
Especially when your mind keeps saying let her go,
At the same time your heart keeps screaming no,
I don’t think anyone could ever perfect,
When the time is right to move on and forget

Sometimes we’re weak and sometimes we’re strong,
At times we feel lost at others where we belong,
We all love to laugh but sometimes we must cry,
It’s a balancing act I can’t tell you why,
Life is full of opportunities and threats,
Seize the opportunities don’t worry about regrets,
Our lives are full of paths we can choose,
Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose,
The toughest choice I have to make,
Is if I moved on would it be a mistake…..

Perhaps the most difficult balance in this world,
Is holding on or letting go of your girl,
Especially when your mind keeps saying let her go,
At the same time your heart keeps screaming no,
I don’t think anyone could ever perfect,
When the time is right to move on and forget

It seems like my mind and heart are out of tune,
Should I love her or hate her I don’t know what to do,
Do I stay or do I leave? Move forward or retreat,
The mind and heart present such a challenge,
When they disagree they throw off all balance,
Balance plays such an important part in the world,
But there’s no such thing as balance when you’re in love with a girl.
…..in love with a girl

Shipwrecked Society

Written By: David Schabold

I’ll be the first to testify
The things I’ve seen in life don’t make me want to survive

Trapped in a world of murder, hate, and crime
It’s seems like everyone has lost their minds
People who like to commit murders for fun
Enjoy the excitement of living life on the run
What’s more disturbing than a pedophile
Abducting and raping an innocent child
Hate crimes are happening everyday
Beat a kid to death because he is gay
Where is all this hate stemming from?
When the world was created from so much love

I know this isn’t the world envisioned for us
Full of hate, murder, crime, neglect, and broken trust
So lets be the change we want to see in our lives
Start to turn all the wrongs into rights

So many parents neglecting their kids
Let em do what they want and don’t give a shit
Setting them up for inevitable failure
When as a parent you could be their savior
Constantly striving for financial security
Kids are at home learning about life through the TV
Children get in trouble but the parents aren’t to blame
It’s the media’s fault, they should be ashamed
If your kid shows any signs of distress
Send them off to the psychiatrist
When the root of most children’s defections
Is the simple lack of a parent’s love and affection

I know this isn’t the world envisioned for us
Full of hate, murder, crime, neglect, and broken trust
So lets be the change we want to see in our lives
Start to turn all the wrongs into rights

To all the dirty cops and dirty politicians
You are the ones that should really listen
Because you were blessed to be in the position
To help the world and create positive change
Instead your to busy doing all the wrong things
To the corporate world and all you CEO’s
What kind of example are you setting with your ethical woes?
Lie, cheat, and steal to maximize profit
I guess in our society you’re the perfect fit

I know this isn’t the world envisioned for us
Full of hate, murder, crime, neglect, and broken trust
So lets be the change we want to see in our lives
Start to turn all the wrongs into rights

I’ll be the first to testify
The things I’ve seen in life don’t make me want to survive
