Take Me To Another Country
The rain birds keep hopping up and down the town
stamping the rain out of the ground with their wire feet but
they have little to compete and the sun is walking under my feet. They are looking for a place to settle down, and they are flying around in the air whispering a message that is so dear and the silent sound kept moving around with a saturated sound. I can hear it tingling in my ear beckoning me to run away to the hills and be very still. The myriads of trees standing on top of the mountain stares at me with confidence and persuading me to come and join them. They take on the character of the soul and they tell me that I am very bold and mountain is standing above them while the heaven is calling out to them. My spirit is crying and my heart is weeping. The tears cannot flow and wind cannot blow. Today is a peculiar day and everything is moving away
the street is crowded, traffic is moving right left and center and people walking up and down the town with various sound. The peanut man, the jerk man, the soup man, and the fried chicken man congregate on the corner of the park doing business in the dark. Smoke is parachuting in the air circulating the sweet aroma far and near. And just as I thought about it I feel the need for a shoulder to lean on so I climbed up the stairs to seek consolation but two wild eyes sunken in its age describe me as the devil and the negative vibration began to pound in my ears. I moved quickly away from it and start to think about it.I looked deep within myself to seek an answer for the next chapter
But there is no next chapter only a brighter tomorrow with love
and laughter oh if I could just walk into it and start living it.
Now that the show is over and the set is down and everyone
is moving out of the town but the questions still stand
who will take me to the airport with my heavy load,
The load that accompanied me for millions of miles with the savior
riding by my side, I could feel the negative energy moving away from around me and the angles singing with me while the rain clouds sinks in the deep blue
sky and bid the sun and the crisps fry earth goodbye.
My heart is flaming and the night clouds are shaking,
I just want to go away from here and be
in a quiet place where I can breath fresh air
I want to listen to classical sound and absorb positive energy
And move around with nature where ever it is bound.
Oh how much I yearn to be in a comfortable place
To have continental breakfast on the balcony
And read a good book and sip tea from a special cup
I want to munch on a biscuit and have a slice of cheese cake
before I meditate, And in the evening I will relax in the tub
meditate and take a scrub, I can dream of it but destiny will make it happen
The days are moving quickly and my soul is burning
My chest is tightening up and my gut is crying out
Come and sing this new song with me and set my
spirit free, come and take me to another country
To walk on the vast stretch of land and absorb the scent of culinary her
I want to walk on the river bed and wet my feet in still water,
And sit upon rocks and nature and look way out at the docks
Ah, it is the full moon and my spirit is getting cool
But I want you to take me from this place
before it is too late. The work in this area is done
And it is time to move away and have real fun.
Take me to another place so that I can mingle
with another race and speak with them face to face.
