Alternative Valentine’s Day by Joey

Joe Imperi returns with some of his poetry with his spin on Valentine’s Day.


Going through the motions

Drifting through the world with my blank stare
Constantly reminded how much I should care
If time is on my side and always there for me
Why can’t I ever get ahead or feel free?

Procrastination has become such a weight
With bated breath I seem to know my fate
I have tried all I can to fly out of this cloud
My only true mission, to make my kids proud

It’s become a daily chore to wear my smile
I have been tired for a very long while
Things that were and can probably never be
Are what keep the distress alive and well in me

Moving on slowly doing whatever I truly can
Fighting to keep it real and be a good man.
