Looking

Look within the spirit inside

It hides and doesn’t want to hide

But we search for everything we do

Knowing what we are but not who

I could go looking

Outside my home

Or perhaps I could go looking inside of Rome

Or maybe outside quiet in there

Sometimes we need to do what we don’t want to

So we might be looking in the wrong place

We shouldn’t be looking outside our homes

We shouldn’t be looking neither in Rome

We should be looking quite more deeper

We should be looking more inside

We  should be looking at our family

we should be looking at our culture

We should be looking inside our home

It doesn’t matter our goal

We should be looking where we come from

We should be looking at ourselves

Not the blame we place on someone

Not the hate we pin on each other

Not the discrimination we places on races

Not the stereotypes we lay on Culture

We should be looking inside

For who we are

And who we will become!

Where Am I Going

Where am I going from here?

My voice rings out

Echoing in the night

Where do I go from here?

The mind is spinning

With unanswered questions

Where do I go from here?

Do I go left?

To certain death?

Do I go right?

And begin to write?

Do I go up?

Climbing and pushing the bar too high?

Do I go down?

Not a likely choice.

Where do I go from here?

I could go anywhere.

But do I?

Do I leave behind what I know?

Do I leave behind and don’t see how I’ve grown,

Tell me what I should do.

No, this is my choice

Where do I go from here?

Listen

Sit on my lap dear child

Look there

Do you see them

No grandfather, I don’t see them

Look closer child

They were promised a new life

One that they would be happy

So there they stood

Along the edge of the water

Waiting and waiting for a ship never to come

Delight and happiness they called the ship

Yet years went by

Delight and happiness never arrived

And look again dear child, they’re still there

Waiting

What does that teach you

To stand for something you believe in

No, good but no. Never lose hope child

Did you listen?

Lifetime

Lifetimes roll by

like waves in the sea

Lifetimes sing in your ear

Like a choir singing right here

Lifetimes are rolling ever closer

Singing the song made especially for you

Just look out you’re window to see it

It’s like snow falling ever so slowly

Lifetimes aren’t rolling quickly

Every roll is another obstacle

Just for you to jump over

Each obstacle getting bigger

Until

Lifetimes end with you…

Sorry

I’m sorry for everything I’ve done

I’m sorry for what the world is

I’m sorry I couldn’t be better

I’m sorry for once

I regret losing opportunities

I regret losing myself

I regret being cruel

I regret losing you

I wish things could be different

I wish I could be better

I wish you hadn’t run away

I wish we could still be here

We used to be in so much love

We used to have a second chance

But now that love is over again

Never to show it’s face again

I wish I could find better words

But all that there’s left to say

Is

I’m sorry
