Daily Wisdom Words, DWW Music Prompt

BETTER BY MYSELF BY HEY VIOLET

BETTER BY MYSELF BY HEY VIOLET

I know what is going through your head right now. “Is Monday going through some emotional downpour?” I guess the answer is no. I actually stumbled on the song on Youtube after searching for a good song for the prompt on the internet.

It may sound funny but trust me, many people go through mind blowing things in life and these things that i have no knowledge of has the very ability to destroy them instantly. This the reason why many are plagued with high blood pressure, stroke, dementia, ulcer, and several other ailment due to long hours of solitude and deep thoughts of how they could have done it better, leave it be or said something to alter it.

I have asked myself many times if there was a way to stop…when i mean stop, i am intentionally talking about putting an end to heart and head aches. Yes! there is a way to stop it- you’ll hear of it in the song that is featured on the prompt today.

The solution may not be appealing to you but it works. And like every man made solution, it has loop holes.

SHOUT TO @reeniereid1 AND HER DAUGHTER WHO IS CURRENTLY FIGHTING. JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE IN THE FIGHT TOGETHER. GET WELL SOON!

Let’s go on with the prompt;

  • Listen to the song above
  • Compose a poem inspired by song
  • Share with us via comment box below

Check out the lyrics to the song below for poetic guidance….HAPPY WORLD TOURISM DAY!

LYRICS OF BETTER BY MYSELF BY HEY VIOLET

There may be something in the water
Over here in California’s
Got me feeling like I’m better off alone
Maybe it’s the way you used me
Watered down my love, abused me
And you always criticized me on the phone
Ooh, ah
Would you kill me if I told you
That I never wanna speak to you
‘Cause when I’m on my own, I feel alive
And there’s nothing wrong with crying
But my empathy is dying
‘Cause we never were that good, we’d always fight
I’m better by myself (self)
I’m better when there’s no you in my life
I’m better by myself (better by myself, better by myself)
I’m better by myself (better by myself, better by myself)
You’re no good for my health (better by myself, better by myself)
I’m better by myself (better by myself, better by myself)
Everything you do just wears me down
It’s getting old, I’m trying to run
It feels like you’re just wasting me away
When you choose to terrorize me
Any confidence inside me dies
You suffocate me with the things you say…

Maybe you never knew me
this time around
turbulent waves took us
our wildness washed ashore.

Empathic eyes sear mine
tormented hearts ablaze
we sine wave each day
ecstasy and agony.

Maybe we are still lost
an interlude of loneliness
even this passion shattered
won’t stop us next time.

Don’t let
love blind
you and rob
you of your
self respect
Climb your
own mountian
Be the your
own champion
Self love
Is the best
thing you
can have
There are
No self
doubt
when you
put yourself
first
Love starts
with you
Then one day
right person
will appear
Open your
Soul too and
Just breathe

Under the watchful gaze
of ghostly trees
i buried my sorrow
under heaps of grey leaves
stream of tears gleams
binding tendrils of smiles
over chapters of a story
beauty has yet to give
upbeat in my own company
upon seashells i dance
beaming with hope
in sunlight’s strokes.

I’m with Abuh β€œon the poet I’d like to emulate!” Michelle you rock! Btw- way my daughter love that video! Unfortunately right now my husband and I are sitting outside of the ER because we’re not allowed to go in. She couldn’t stop vomiting so we brought her in. Cancer sucks! You are an amazing beautiful soul. I love you my friend πŸ’•
