TODAY

TODAY

Today I will be the poet of me
I will write what I bleed 
in a life that isn't free
I will be the same as I am today
as I was in the past 
I will write what I hold deep inside my mind
what reaches in my heart 
that pours out like rain 
that gives me so much pain 
that makes me sigh in a ancient way
when I am sitting in a traffic storm
my mind starts to take me back 
in a painful afternoon 
where loss of a loved one that kept me stun
by night the moon shone its gloom
while I was hurting in the waiting room
I felt apart of me fleeing from me
I closed my eyes and started to pray 
that everything will be okay today
Oh the pain I must pay for being too late
while my eyes are still closed 
I picture you standing before me
telling me that you are free
today you must hold on to your faith
and never look away 
no matter the pain of the storm
today I will write what it is I sigh
today I am the poet of me 
I don't know what tomorrow holds
but that is for me to see when that day comes
but right now the whole world is right before me
in my own blood stain ink of me.
