Dare to dream of Wind

He ran away to chase his dreams
Short of a miracle was it not?

Yet the winds of change roared strongly at night
Enter- the fierce winds of time
It will be you alone.

As you dance, I cry
Blow the flowers toward me
Free to drown me now.

Like a DJ on steroids,
I won't allow you to slice through my heart anymore,
My beautiful daughter, Windstream.

Yesterday's Joys

Walking around
I see myself fifteen years younger-
Playful and not caring what the world thought of me.
Chocolate dripping from my small lips
Yes,
those were the times.
Being three years old yet acting as if I were Spider-Man-
Shooting my fictitious webs at enemies only I could see.
Being three again,
Has its privileges.
I can have cake for breakfast,
Kiss any girl I want,
Live life to the fullest...at least until my patience runs out.
Yesterday's Joys are today's Taken For Granted.

Lost In My Mind

I woke up to the sounds of gun shots
I’m not in hell, just in a prison cell I call home- Paterson
Behind these bars
The world looks so different like an atomic bomb of colors exploded while I was 
gone.


Chorus

Bullets flying through the air
Cutting lives like there was a way to replace that
Like an old pair of Nikes weathering the storm after fifty years of dust and 
neglect
I wish for a better place,
A nicer home,
Better living conditions for my mom

Verse 2
Walking through the streets in my mind
Never thinking about my life
I live in the past when a notebook produced my only escape
But another shot flies through the air and brings me back to reality- I’m a 
murderer
Never to see light again.

Chorus

Bullets flying through the air
Cutting lives like there was a way to replace that
Like an old pair of Nikes weathering the storm after fifty years of dust and 
neglect
I wish for a better place,
A nicer home,
Better living conditions for my mom

Verse 3
Adrenaline pumping as I’m ready to punch the cold bars,
But I wake up for a second time and I realize
Life continues when you die
No matter what.
And I was lost in my mind but not anymore.
I know who I am,
I know what’s right and what’s wrong,
But most importantly- I understand.

Love Ending

Stay with me tonight my dear beloved.
I beg of you to not drink another!
Crime is higher than world’s intelligence.
Heaven on Earth is thee, believe in me.

My heart it grieves for another fresh home.
I hate I love is this ending, my love?
I want to be in love once again God.
Save me from me and send me on for good.

What Is Love Like

Okay, I am done
Writing with no heart annoys
"What is love like sir"
"To my surprise" he begins
"It is not soft as clouds"

Love story pt 3 ( only 98 more to go )

Why her of all people? Why'd I have to fall in love with her?
I'm losing my mind and it's not a figure of speech.
Tell me the truth, no tell me the lie do you love me too?
I'm under a different kind of pressure 'cause it looks like I'm falling deeper with you.
Was there a slip-up in life when I saw you two?
I hope you can understand that I'm just being me when I say, "I love you."

Lily Pads

Green, are lily pads
Floating on a waterfall.
Clear of pollution?
Indeed I dare not say yes.
But soon there will come a day.
