Sometimes things do not concern us until they hit home.

Until They're Yours

 

 

Movies over dramatize

Deaths and you don't realize

What you're crying for—

Until they're yours.

 

You don't like your girl's father

And how he loves his daughter

Until you have yours—

Until they're yours.

 

There is nothing you despise

More than someone who tells lies.

Lies are uncalled for

Until they're yours.
