Yoke of Life

I received so many wonderful gifts I'm thankful and oh so grateful I had a good amount of uplifting lifts Life is so abundant and beautiful Spill it all to the floor some more I heard you shut the front door You cry victim - it amazes me Lights grow dim - you want to be set free I'm thirsty for special attention, especially from you I'm craving clever change in my life too My head is spinning round and round like a tornado, destroying many cities Catastrophe brews in my mind's eye that's still blind from several debris Spill it all to the sky up high I heard you sorrowfully cry and sigh You weep bitterly - it is horrendous The sky's glittery - it is enormous life is one huge mug of coffee with creamer of all kinds life is filled up with signs that are like white blinds Most of my life, I've been struggling to meet the finish line Oh no, I accidentally met up with the dead end - now I'm feeling fine! Oh yes, I purposely fell in love with solitude's hold My heart is pounding as fast as a cheetah in fields of gold spill the Yoke of life upon me Be still, healing is near, you see? spill the Yoke of life upon me Get up and get over the sensation of envy Life is...a maze of bewilderment and sentimental glee Life is...killing me softly and oh so quickly Come on and let life unfold and inspire many unknown My life has been constructed by being all alone and on my own Isolated by the wave of fans and enemies I got to say - behave and be brave please! Live life to the fullest I would love to try my best Finally, I've made your heart cheery and proud Emerald gold is for the ambitious spirit - so bold and loud Empathetic individuals surround me now Finishing up my poetry book in a jiffy somehow I wish life would be a lot easier Live life to the best of your ability for sure I shine bright in the light I shine bright when I take flight Tonight, you and I will Own the Night Tonight, you and I will fight the great fight Today, I pray for a brighter day Don't fill my heart with utter dismay I pray, I pray, I pray for a wonderful day I shine, I shine, I shine so bright in the light of today I'm ashamed for what I've done I said goodbye and now, you're gone I used to shine so bright with happiness Now look at me - I'm an ugly mess! In the light of today, I quietly pray In the autumn breeze, I'm put at ease In the light of this day, Serenity comes my way In the night of disarray and dismay, Depression and chaos produce today If you're not brave enough, Suck it up then If you're not strong enough, Then try again If you're not confident, Suck it up then If you're not triumphant, Then try again I pity you I really do You have no clue How much I love you You have no clue You really do You pity me? How dare you... Get on the ball and soak up the yoke of life My emotions fall away into the abyss of strife Be still, know that sorrow is temporary You cry victim - it amazes me So, spill out life upon me, darling Soak up the yoke of prosperity...sincerely... Spill the yoke of life upon the universe Life, in general, is a gift, not a curse This emptiness inside me will never be complete Make me whole again and back on my feet Spill the yoke of life upon you and I Reach out to the sky and fly away on by The less we know, The better, you know? You cry victim - it amazes me You cry victim - it enthralls me You'll receive the fortune of positivity So, come on and soak up the yoke of prosperity
