LOVE (Like a Beatle)

All you need is

L

O

V

E

and eventually we’ll figure it out

scream and shout

at the tops of our lungs

doesn’t matter where you’re from

who you’re with

or what you do

I love you

like a brother

or a sister

because you are

and shooting star

gazing

beats dive bars

raising hell

like an archangel

I fell from the top

of my lungs

deep breath

where you from?

who’s left?

right…

left alone

broken cell

phone

broken glass

too many stones

break my heart

not sure where to start

but in the beginning

they planted the seed

then something went wrong

got consumed

by greed

consuming things

we don’t need

I need

you

and you need

me

and I don’t care

what they tell

me

and I won’t buy

what they try to sell

me

and I just know

in my heart

that the only

place to start

is

L

O

V

E

eventually we’ll get there

wearing hearts on sleeves

getting raked like leaves

born again

in the compost bin

back to the earth

for what it’s worth

ashes to ashes

and dirt to dirt

under my fingernails

cut off

before I set sail

bail me out now

I’m sinking

can’t stop thinking

about

L

O

V

E

I believe we need

to

E

V

O

L

V

E

how about we dissolve

all of our hate

lets hold hands

and let perfect strangers

past the gate

who’s with me?

we can’t be late…

we gotta go

just imagine

that we’ll get there

eventually…

from here

across the ocean

we’ll see

the universe

in harmony

eating strawberries

with our enemies

cant you see

how great it will be

when we get to a place

where all we see

is

L

O

V

E

 

 

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel.
