More Than Just April’s Fool…


more than just

More Than Just April’s Fool…

When the miracle of life ceases to amaze you,

When you no longer see the stars,

When strangers make you want to scream,

And all you see when you look at your life are scars.

When laughter makes you cringe,

When sunshine drives you mad,

When love to you is but a kiss of death,

When you believe that kindness is sad.

When giving makes you angry,

When justice and liberty make you sick,

When forgiveness to you is but a crutch for fools,

When the joy of life is like a daily kick.

When beauty to you looks like a muddy puddle,

When grace sends you running for the hills,

When empathy it does repulse you,

When fun to you means popping pills.

When courage makes you shiver,

When faith makes your skin crawl,

When truth you’d sell for lies,

When you love to trip folk, make them fall.

When the ocean leaves you wanting,

When the present just makes you want to die,

When possibility to you is but a joke,

When you laugh at those who dare to try.

Then yours is but a sorry tale

Full of fear and lessons cruel,

Full of the kind of thoughts and actions

That make you, more than just April’s fool.
