Weighted Wings

I have grown wings bigger than what one can see with their eyes

With feathers that number more than the stars in night skies

With great ease I have learned to flap my wings

For through tragedy they were meant to carry me

Alas my night skies are no more

For I am grounded in a world with out air to grant me flight

So in my mind I will imagine what it means to sore through open skies

I will run for miles through barren lands and flap my wings like great big fans

Close my eyes and dream the dream to live a life among the stars

Until the day my sweet air returns granting me the lift to fly

 

Outstreched Hand

I extend my hand not to make a demand

I extend my hand to compromise a plan

I extend my hand not because I believe you can’t stand

I extend my hand because I care that you’ve fallen

I extend my hand not to keep you down

I extend my hand to pass the love around

I extend my hand not to say I win

I extend my hand to say let’s play again

I extend my hand not to say your a child

I extend my hand because I hope you will stay a while

You may not know or understand why I extend my hand

But I can say if you do take my hand you’ll find my reasons quite grand

GR<3WN UPs

If growing up means I have to give up on my dreams because their just beyond my reach

A child I shall stay for in my heart I know I will always find another way

If growing up means I have to give up on those I love because it hurts less

A child I shall stay because everyone deserves to have that friend who will always stay

If growing up means when life gets hard I will run away

A child I shall stay for I know tomorrow is another day

If growing up means my feelings must remained boxed and sealed away

A child I shall stay for I am a drink to be poured not a bottle to be corked and forgotten

If growing up means I must blend into the crowd

A child I shall stay for I was meant to live out loud

If growing up means my promises become just words

A child I shall stay for a pinky promise made is most precious & true

If growing up means my worries become my life

A child I shall stay for I will always make time to play

If growing up means I must learn to lie to myself each day

A child I shall stay for I refuse to shield myself away from pain

There is already enough “grown ups” in this world today

But god knows we need more GR♥WN UPS who know how to laugh and play

If growing up means I have to abandon who I am and what I believe in

A child I shall stay to dance and play among the stars

 

Function Differently

Yes I function differently than you it’s true

But it doesn’t mean I don’t care for you

It doesn’t mean we can’t work as a pair

Yes I function differently than you

But that doesn’t make my love any less true

If we learn to to understand each other

To see the love we have for another

Viewed through the eyes of our other

Perhaps we could go on an adventure at home

And feel at home while out on an adventure

Yes I function differently than you

But if you could see the world through my view

You’d find just as many colors of wonder

As you see through your perception of the world

Just from angles you didn’t see were there

So yes I function differently than you

But that doesn’t make us that different

I think I feel I hurt I cry I live I love I laugh I die

I fear  I hope and bleed like you

So yes I function differently than you

But if you look closer I’m just like you

Blue Seas Blue Skies

Who knew true blue
Is not the color of the sea
But the color of me
While I wait here for you
Not knowing if I’m even
A memory in your mind
Do I exist in your heart
You exist in mine
If I do I hope it’s pleasant
My heart cries
My soul longs
My memory smiles for you
What does it mean
These polar opposites
Existing within
Like a battle with an evil twin
Which is me which is true
Perhaps two halves make a whole
Perhaps I smile because I know
You mean the world to me
Perhaps I cry because I know
I may never see that world again
I may never feel the warmth of its touch
I may never hear the melodic whispers of its breeze
Will my blue seas
Ever lead to blue skies

Bleeding Soul

As you wander in the dark

You run from your heart

You feel that I wait until it is too late

To show you I care

But dear I’ve always been there

Let me be clear it brings me to tears

And plays with my fears

To see how far this has gone

The things you believe I have done

Charging my soul with Deceit & Revile

Love you know I’m nothing so vile

What could I gain from causing you pain

You are the blood that runs through my veins

Why would I bleed myself dry ending our life

With you spilled in the drain

And me Dead in the rain

Waiting

All alone I sit there
I’m waiting here for you
I know you’re out there
I’m sitting here

I’m calling you
Just like you are calling me
We will meet someday
Someday soon I hope

When that fateful day comes
O how my heart will sing
Until that day comes though
I will sit here waiting all alone

Please don’t make me wait too long
Sitting here all alone
The time seems to slip by slower and slower
While I sit here waiting all alone
