forced rhyme

what to do
when out of rhymes

is it worth it
to spend the time

just to make sure
that each line

has the right meter
to follow the chime

considered a man

time waits for no man
or child at that fact
something I just witnessed
that has nearly taken me aback

leaving childhood behind
and now considered a man
is more than this mom's heart
can fully understand

but both looking back
and looking ahead too
is helpful and fun-
I hope all your dreams come true

peace and quiet

this day and this night
are both filled with
peace and quiet

These are the times
I often yearn for
hearing only the chimes

This can bring peace
and solace too
and sanity and release

These times are needed
though few and far between
so when they're here they're heeded
