Hope

These few words I’ll say to you
Be wary of the deeds you do
Guard well the words that you might say
Else they drive your love away
Be courteous to those you greet
Endeavour not to lie nor cheat
Be not afraid of something new
Its different, no harm to you
Be strong and stand for what is right
Know when the leave and when to fight
Trust good people know your name
That they will also do the same
Together we can change the world
A better future will unfurl
Our children free, their story true
From these few words I tell to you

Echo

Echo
The hollow sound of hollow lives
Made up memories,made up lies
Virtual pals and virtual pokes
fake relationship with folks
Hopes and dreams left in the past
Expectation lost too fast
Where have all, the real friends gone
The ones who drop by by just for fun
When did we lose the skill to say
I hope you have a real nice day

And mean it

Echo
The cry for help the plea for joy
Far to lost in virtual toy
We’ve lost the skill to be a friend
We have no love unless we send
A message direct to a face
In some fake local virtual place
We’ve lost our grace, humanity
Lost in the darkness lost at sea
And all that’s left of our last words
The sound of voices bounces of walls
Like echos

Silently

Silently I stumble, through dark and distant night
Quietly I wonder, if through the tears I might
Find a place where I can be, no longer cold and scared
Where my dreams might become real, my voice finally heard
Push back the tears that try so hard to press upon my cheek
Alone I fight to find the strength to make it through the week
No helping had to lift me up when lifes’ weight presses down
I fight the tide to take a breath, I struggle not to drown
Alone am I but fighting hard Ill press against the throng
To be the better person though the world might do me wrong
So pity not my solitude nor worry ’bout my plight
Ill fight the fight till fighting done and see this life done right

Pheonix

Looking back at what has past
I see where I have been
I see the pain and suffering
The broken distraught scene
I feel the pain that once I felt
I see the sorrowed eyes
The emptiness and and hollow soul
The anguish in the cries
But now much more than ever since
I feel the strength within
The hunger slowly seeping back
The fortitude to win
No more the sad an lonely man
That once wandered alone
I rise anew from suffering
I make a stand I strike a pose
Take pride in pain I’ve known
No more a broken soul you see
No sadness in these eyes
But slowly gaining back my strength
I Pledge once more to rise

My story

Yes I have depression
But I’m not depressed
I may well be tired
But I need no rest
I say I’m fine
And I’m not lying
I do feel sad
But I’m not crying
Sure I may smile
Whilst inside I weep
I may go to bed
And fail to sleep
See I’ve got depression
But I’m not depressed,
Its only half my story,
Lets get on and write the rest

she

Smiling I remember, the way she wears her hair
How she smooths her skirt down as she gets up from her chair
The sparkle in her dark eyes, and her teeth so pearly white
The magic and the sparkle in her smile so bright
Despite my efforts not to, I’m drawn to her each day
To hear her voice, to see her smile, find an excuse to stay
Maybe she already knows, perhaps she’s realised
That she’s put a spell on me, but then that’s no surprise
The music in her laughter, and the smell of her perfume
Would turn the head of any man and dominate the room
But dream to dream is all this is. there is no place to go
So I’ll just sit and think of her, but never let her know

Truth

So here’s the truth
It’s not so sad
There is no good
Without the bad
There is no black
Without the white
There is no darkness
Without light
So when you feel
The days too long
And all events
Are going wrong
Remember this
Its oh so true
All things good
Will come to you

Regret

Don’t hide yourself away my dear
Don’t hide yourself away
Cross you heart and hope to die
That’s what they used to say
Ponder not the past my friend
Nor worry what might be
Do your best today my friend
We’ll see what we shall see
Regret not what might have been
If only you had said
The words or deeds you should have done
Will just mess with your head
Be true and love yourself my love
And what will be will be
Live your life in peace and joy
And please remember me

Its been a while

It’s been a while since last I saw
you walk into this place
I haven’t had the chance to say
I love to see your face
And time goes by, I try to think
Of ways to make you see
There’s so much more that I can give
just take a chance on me
I love to see the sparkling light
That dances in your eyes
The way your laughter captures me
Your warm smile like sunrise
It’s been a while since last I had
The chance to say your name
I wonder of you think of me
And if you feel the same

Alone in a crowd

I’m in the group but make no sound
I stand alone in jovial crowd
I struggle for the words to say
So quietly watch the world at play
And as I watch and see the throng
I know not how I should belong
I’ll try again another day
I’ll find the words I need to say
I’ll find my place and join the crew
And finally dance all night with you
