 HOME OF THE FLOWING PEN

Hard To Understand


I can't say that I remotely understand
Peoples agendas and hidden plans
Whatever happened to being a friend?
Or is that sincerity has met its end?

Maybe what needs to change is me
People tell me things and I choose to believe
I'm learning slowly that I've got it all wrong
I'm a genuine sweetheart and I just don't belong

Perhaps I should throw away faith and trust
And steel my reserve so long it may rust
I simply can not possibly understand
What has happened to modern day man

Still what I can't change is my eyes reflection
Showing the anger, the pain, and rejection
Shining the love that comes from my soul
Try as I might they won't be controlled
