  • Short belongs

    For my friend who I hadn't seen in 5 years and who's such a hard worker and great host but who needs to take care of himself and learn to love himself. I worry about him.



    Short belongs

    I hadn't seen you in so long
    You've had so many short belongs
    Beautiful women come and go
    I saw your pain at our first hello

    I hugged you tight to comfort you
    You looked nothing like you used to
    Aging so fast from life and stress
    Overgrown beard, your hair a mess

    I so want to save you from yourself
    Success at everything but yourself
    You're so fragile and way too thin
    Roads from the drugs and where you've been

    My heart aches for the man I knew
    I know there's not much I can do
    My prayer and hope is that you survive
    Find your way back and stay alive

    This really hurts, AG. I am sorry for your friend, and for all those who have drowned their troubles in substances only to find they are worse off in every way.

      Went to his latest new bar and I was literally shocked. He was in construction and looked like a construction worker but now he's aged and so thin and fragile looking. I'm really worried about him. I'm very sad to see him this way. Thank you very much MH.

    The rhyme and meter here flow kindly, and the hearfelt simplicity of your concern comes through shiningly.
    Of course, nobody can be saved from themselves, unless they are resolved to take their own steps.
