SATURDAYS

I'm havin' so much fun
I never knew that life could be such a blast
I don't want to slow it down
now I'm with you I'm having so much fun

******************

Saturdays are my days of absolute rest
That's when I am either sleeping or online
or I am listening to music and having a great time
Thanks to the world wide web

On Saturday,
I have no cares for the world all over
I am cruising with my lover
while friends in the backseat holler:
This is the life, awesome day!
I enjoy my Saturdays thank you very much
This is when I facebook with friends
to keep in touch.
This is when I visit the local mall
or to go run my usual, personal errands
or going to soccer practice, wish me luck!
On Saturday,
I would do my laundry
wash my clothes soiled and dirty
then turn the TV on to watch a comedy
to hear Monique say, "hey!"
I love my Saturdays like crazy
This is when I am gathering ideas
and not being lazy
This is when I am composing a poem
or being busy in my garden of petunias
or reading the Book of Psalms maybe.
On Saturday,
I meditate by myself in my room
relaxing to peaceful music by some guru
I'm planted, fed, watered, and bloomed
for an hour until my spirits are raised.
