I don’t know about you, but I spent my childhood excited about any time I was allowed to spend alone at home. Especially as a teen, I waited until my parents said they were going out to enjoy my individuality. As teens, some of us threw parties, others just relished in their ability for freedom and autonomy. Everything that fell into place was ergonomically correct…
Gleaming in her eyes, and fire in her soul… brought happiness or heartache– Depending on what they stole.
This world…why? What did we do? Why must we hate? What must we prove?
I want the love–sick of the fear. How will I cope? How can I hear?
Excuse me. Can you tell me where you left my heart? It’s not for free.
What do I have to prove to anyone?
The sun, the moon, the stars?
Of the world
Society has truly been corrupted
By greed and hate
I want to find the portal
To a new reality…
Is there an answer to all of this madness?
Will I get past all my long-lasting sadness?
Slipping into Uncertainty
I choke on Broken pieces Of yesterday
Can you help me?!
I’ve lost my mind!
into the drain
In debt up to my ears
To soothe my fears
Stop all that unnecessary chatter
I just desire invisibility
In my existence right now–
It all seems clear–
Not black nor white.
It all seems more ethical–
Not wrong nor right.
Feeling optimistic about my day–
So many things I want to say!
How many times must I make mistakes
Before I move on, grow, and take chances?
One step forward, two steps back…
I could look at my life as a dance,
But why am I so frustrated
For nobody giving me a chance?
How many times have I sat here and wondered
If what I’m saying will reach someone new?
I’m lying in the present while nightmares of my past
Come gripping at my soul – my future overcast.
Tell me what’s it’s like to live a life in pain,
And I’ll show you how to smile while dancing in the rain.
