Later on today...yeah...
Fireworks are gonna sound like
Gunshots in each direction...
But, it looks like a growing sunflower in the air
The sounds are too much to bear...
Scaring cats and dogs away...
Confusion sticks to us...like a leech
I'm not feeling okay...I want to go to the beach
I have a migraine...okay?
Let me swim away into the ocean
Fireworks go off, but I'm caught in waves of motion...
And I forget about the commotion...
Thank the Lord Almighty...
For His loving-kindness and peace He plants in me
I get afraid when
Fireworks go off
I get spooked out in the den
Full of lions and I have
REJOICE! It's fourth of July!
Oooh! Look at the glorious, black velvet sky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
