A Better Man

Conflicted, twisted, can’t get it straight
Feelings of uselessness invade the mind
Is there a better man for them?
A candle flickering, the sun peaking through clouds
Fighting off the self disgust
Jealousy, insecurity...the stabbing pain
Is there a better man for them?
Doing my best…not nearly enough
Happy but hating
Loving and loved…but is it enough
Things can’t go on in the manner they are
Is there a better man for them?
The scale teeters, weight on both sides
What is for the best – love or money
Clutching to a thread, unable to choose
I had better be right, I’ve got everything to lose

Am I helping or hurting?

Dude, you wanna make it work then I'm here. I don't give a shit about money, NEVER HAVE! I love you

I'm seriously doubting that there's anyone better for that family than you.

Great words.

Ahhh the joys of conflict, could they be any more deliciously painful?

You just keep plugging away. That's all one can do, and from what I've read, you do it well.

And well well well ... look who's number three on the Urinator list?

Oh is that little ol ME? He he ... Here's a GEM of info for you:
1. The number 3 is my favorite number.
2. I was born 03.03.73
3. I turned 30 on 03.03.03

Groovy huh?

Now, go take that heartburn pill and (as my father always says) rest your eyes!

You love them, that's obvious. From what Mariah says, you are the best man. You just need to know it.
