It's All Good

It's All Good

A Poem by Melanie Jane Boicourt Shanks

Written a long time ago.

You don't have to prove somebody wrong
To realize you're right.
If you want to prove you're strong,
You don't have to fight.
You don't have to prove that it's not black,
to recognize it's white.
And you don't have to force it on,
to see if it's too tight.

It's All good, and we're Allright. (4Xs)

The grass ain't always greener
On the other side.
Sometimes the things we feel the most
Are the things we try to hide.
Sometimes the things we meant to say
Aren't the things that we implied,
And we don't enjoy to the full extent
Everything that we have tried.

It's All good, and we're Allright. (4Xs)

There's Allways someone guiding you
To help you find your way.
The sun is always shining
To get you through your day.
When you give someone advice
Please hear the words you say,
And when you feel your sacrifice
You can Allways pray...

It's All good, and we're Allright. (4Xs)

I have been writing since I knew how. Before that I would just draw pictures to tell a story. My true passion is poetic lyrics. That is mostly what I am inspired to write. I have been dabbling in othe.. more..
