An Adverse World Unfurled

Suddenly, I constantly cough, cough, cough
I haven't had enough, for this life's so rough 
My friend is right beside me and he truly understands 
Where I stand and I thoughtfully fiddle with my hands 

Oh, my back and knees are hurting once more…
I've been through so much lately and that's an understatement...that's a huge understatement
I lose track of time when I'm feeling pretty sore
I've been blue, but I'll be alright with family and my friend that are full of love and not resentment

I have a precious daugher that cares for me
She is everything to me and more, you see?
She will grow up to be like me someday
She already is like me, but the things I have experienced I wish she doesn't go through I pray

My dear wife is always around when I need her -
She is amazing in every single way… I'm not unsure
I am certain that she was made to be with me for life… she's a mighty gorgeous wife
If anyone tries to take her away from me, I'll punch them out and I'll end their life 

I listen to music to soothe my heart, spirit, soul and mind...never left behind
My eyes glisten in the sunlight and moonlight 
I'm smoking my bong with my friend, a moment that is an unforgettable find
My silent cries are heard by the Lord of light

What does an adverse world mean to you? 
What does it mean to me? Is it meant to be? 
High off the fumes of the bowl I had earlier, but it helps me through -
It takes horrible things off my mind and it sets my high spirits free 

Fortunately, I enjoy hanging out with my buddy a lot of times, a lot of the times
I also enjoy hanging with my family - as satisfying as poetry-passionate rhymes 
They sing awesomely and I sit back calmly and watch 
I think they are almost perfect with no flawful blotch 

I have to move my body and I often shake…I shake, then I take a break 
I want to shake away the stress as of late 
Well, I am far from being a fake and I am like the King of Lake Havasu lake
It's my fate to be with my little strong family of unattainable love and not horrendous hate

I am a very considerate guy 
That, I cannot honestly deny 
I wish I can get back into shape like I was and play sports like my rather younger years 
Those days are over and I'm glad they are for the most part with no second thought tears 

I look back at old photos and think to myself -
My hair and facial hair has changed so much...we all change and such 
I look back at your pictures and I see that you've learned to love yourself 
You are the loveliest, best wife I can ever have and I always need your touch

What does an adverse world mean to you? 
What does it mean to me? Is it meant to be? 
High off the fumes of the bowl I had earlier, but it helps me through -
It takes horrible things off my mind and it sets my high spirits free 

What does an adverse world mean to you? 
What does it mean to me? Will it free me? 
High off the fumes of the bowl I had earlier, but it helps me through, who knew -
It takes horrible things off my mind and it sets my worries on fire thankfully

My back and knees can't take it anymore…
Feels like no one cares that I'm awfully sore
But I have a supportive friend that looks after me though
And a beloved daughter and beautiful wife that loves me so 

I want to kill away the pain in my heart -
From the start, it's been tearing me apart
Allow me to brew away the grief inside
As I take a few hits of my bong and smoke with pain-free pride 

I smoke away the sorrow and put me at ease
Just hand me another bong and tell me that I truly belong, I truly belong
All my life, I've been in pain in all aspects of life, so please…
See me through the wrong I've done as I do another hit off my bong 

Passion will surely pour…
As long as my wings soar
In addition, I really want to live in an adverse world with you - 
The tragedy in total reverse that is a delightful dream come true 

You should thank me for living life abundantly
You were an angry and abusive man, but that's not me
You didn't love me fatherly, father of lies and bittersweet goodbyes
But, my sweet family loves me plenty throughout my lows and highs

~inspired by and dedicated to my brother-in-law, AJP...please read An Adverse World and An Adverse World in Reverse. Thank you!~

We suppose to smoke or ingest. If not, why have cannabinoid receptors throughout our brain and body? And, its the only plant that produces enough THC, CBD, etc. for human consumption. God created us that way! Hurry up and pass dat chit : )

In the poem this person is in pursuit of being a better man than his experiences... Good!
