Later
Robert Cathey Jun 2016
"Later" is word
I wish I never knew.
You couldn't imagine
What that word has put me through.
I put things off
"Later" caused me to procrastinate.
"Later" made me lazy
It made me hesitate.
"Later" ended my marriage
It destroyed my life.
"Later" has taken a toll on my family
"Later" caused a change in my wife.
She used to have faith in me
Because my word was bond.
"Later" became a part of my vocabulary
Now she is gone.
"Later" became a part of my speech
People started to hate to hear me say it.
They knew when I said "Later"
Whatever I had to do, I would somehow delay it.
I would take my time
& put things on hold.
I didn't think it was a problem
Because "Later" is what they were told.
My wife wanted to talk
"Later" was my reply.
"Later" never came
& I don't know why.
I really wanted to listen
But I just didn't try
She got tired of waiting for "Later"
So she told me Bye-Bye.
"Later" was convient
It seemed to be the right thing to say.
It seemed like an escape from things
I didn't want to do anyway.
"Later" will never be used again by me
I've learned my lesson well.
That word "Later"
Has made my life a living hell.
If by chance I have to use it
I'll be sure to follow through.
NEVER let that word "Later"
Consume or destroy you too.

Drastic words taken from a manic world,
Have you heard that what they print is labelled on you.
Its over now,
As the sun begins to rise,
Tomorrows world,
Always forgets the man that dies.

Reality later,
Reality later,
Fiction from the truth printed there.
Reality later,
Reality later,
Editorial journalists they don't care cause the paper sells...

Tabloid Mess!

Celebrity taker,
Paparazzi will follow you everywhere,
So you want to be in the paper?
Fame and fortune has its price that will tear.
Sold out now,
This world exclusive news,
Read all about it now,
Aliens land on chrismas eve!

Reality later,
Reality later,
Fiction from the truth printed there,
Reality later,
Reality later,
Editorial journalists they dont care cause the paper sells...

Tabloid Mess!

They deserve it now,
All of those printed lies,
War of words,
From the media moguls!

Reality later,
Reality later,
Fiction from the truth printed there.
Reality later,
Reality later,
Editorial journalists they dont care cause the paper sells...

Tabloid Mess!

Reality later,
Reality later,
Fiction from the truth printed there.
