he's tired of the world.
he's tired of listening and counseling.
he's tired of trying to end the fights.

the playground is calling, with tones of yellow, blue and green.
his mind, with wandering thoughts painted with questions.
his brushes, with forgotten scenes of bliss.
the wood, with untraveled trails and undiscovered wonder.
his pen, with blank verse and untold tales.
tales of pasts that held simple back-porch views, cold-cut honesty, and unbiased truth.

tales of discord and rhyme.

tales of unreturned love, and reprehended folly.
