Not Easy Being Irish

Sometimes… I feel emotions so deeply in my heart That I almost wish I wasn’t Irish. That sometimes to feel happiness, Sadness…and yes…e’en pain So intensely That at times It’s a curse and At others a blessing, a boon and a bane To suffer such bittersweet pleasure From music, poetry…and pain Sometimes… My heart aches At the bright break of dawn And tears rain down my cheeks At the sight of the setting Sun. And many are the times that weigh Heavy ‘pon this old poet When the pen cannot capture The words that caper capriciously Through this ol’ sodden mind of mine Sometimes… The beauty and the sadness, the long dark tresses And bewitching eyes of Irish lasses The wonder and the madness Overwhelm, defy and defeat an Irishman’s Best efforts…in truth Ne’er known in this life Oftimes… The skirling of the pipes And the sad wail of the flute Rend my heart with renditions Of ‘Amazing Grace,’ ‘Oh Danny Boy,’ And ‘Auld Lang Syne’ Yet my pen is unable And lies stubborn ‘pon the table Unwilling to put my feelings to paper Sometimes…I harbour passions That elude my ability to describe And sometimes…It’s just hard to be Irish… A burden …To be Irish and unable to write…
