Daybreak

Sometimes it’s good to start over

when the damage is done

though some won’t allow

say the damage too deep

but even the most evil

should be forgiven

given a second chance

a clean slate

a chance to try again

because someday that

might be you

Flying

Stung

cat got my tongue

not believing

grieving

my eyes are blurred

he whispered three words

I go from crying

to flying

Pool of Tears

I’ll find my pool of tears

where all my dreams come true

all my dreams of dreams

Secret Wish

I have a secret dream

that nobody seems to know

and I don’t want to tell

people guess

world peace

no matter how hard you try

that will never happen

love

that will happen when I’m ready

happiness

enjoy the little things

you’ll be the happiest person on earth

here’s my dream

now can’t you see

the freedom of dream

without disbelief

Growth

Does not mean

going through life till the end

it means living life to its fullest

having fun

making mistakes

but not making the same ones twice

changing

understanding

growth

Peaceful as a lion

I shouldn’t

not worth it

what is he talking about

no

no

nooooooooooooo

he didn’t

crying

sad

angry

unsure

scared

not peaceful

Dawn

Pink

orange

gold

sky

colors mixed

like painting

where the sun

and moon

whisper

Too Deep

Start over

what’s that supposed to mean

put puddles back in the sky,

leaves back on trees.

start over

not gonna happen

some cuts are just too deep
