Poem By Gideon Ryan

There's so many things a man can do
And yet so many he cannot
Life is but a gift and one always taken back
Live life once, not wish you had
Love just until tomorrow
For each tomorrow may be our last
The world is lost only if we let it be.

Happy And Free

I’ve been through this 'dessert' we call life
Full of the pains, sorrows, and strife
Big on losing, I sure as hell aint
But that’s the funny thing ‘bout this bitch called fate

The Streets We Never Cross

Two lovers pass on a street yet they know not the other's name
One smiles, the other looks at her feet
Both wonder where love has gone

A Romantic Night

Me and Mary all dancin’ in the street
We’re all smiles in spite of the heat
People say we’re crazy maybe cause of the rain
Maybe not


When I was young and men were still considered great
Great meant wearing a suit and growing a mustache
So I bought a suit and shaved less
When I was older and men were still considered great


Oh how you like to kick me when I'm down
To laugh at me when I'm already crying
I know its too late but we still try
There's no room for failure but failure if we don't
