Quietly, quietly, I hear ingenuity
I see the figures of pure price and privacy
Folks love society, yet question autonomy
How can a bird fly with wonders and cruelty?
Quietly, quietly, listen so quietly
Listen to stories so filled with nobility
No plot or melody, no theme or certainty
All I behold is old-fashioned temerity
Quietly, quietly, these lines are heartwarming
Drilling your spirit and taking adversity
Night will bring jealousy, cold generosity
Younger emotions will fade, thanks to fallacy
Are we all saddening, soaked in diversity
Waiting for sunset to state we are solidarity
When facing curiosity, coated in maturity
Be cautious to listen and feel all uncertainty
Quietly, quietly, life is no cavity
Think of the battles you’ll fight for true victory
Feel all stiff enmity, but keep prosperity
So you won’t be crushed by the saintly guilty.
Do you ever feel the thorn of winter in summer?
Do you ever feel the cold breeze linger on your shoulder?
Do you ever understand all the mysteries of the dark?
Do you ever hear the voice that screams at your back?
Do you ever feel afraid in the midst of the crowd?
Do you ever seek a friend in the mist under ground?
Have you seen everything that is hidden from man?
Have you heard every tune in the music of the land?
Have you tried to be sane in the middle of a storm?
Have you tried any trick to redeem your soul from the worms?
I almost crashed
It was a close accident
No cars, just lives
No blood, just pangs
Something in David’s voice
The presence of courage
It found me
Kept me breathing
It kept me
Strong and safe
I almost lost all
But it gave me back myself
And for the love of living
As you get on the road with no clear destination
You have got to be filled with pure determination
If you shift many times make sure you never fall
There is no one so kind to see if you stand tall
When you get in the storm
Just believe you are strong
Only weaklings get caught
In the web of the nought
When the fire is burning
Keep on sailing and soaring
It may take times and seasons
But you’ll still find your healing.
I keep fighting with myself but I don’t know if I am winning
I keep taking baby steps although I know they’re not within
Everyday I tell that spirit that I leave it all to him
But sometimes I wonder if indeed this journey is for me
You may find me sitting lost in thoughts but that is not the end
I have taken all my troubles and I hold them in my hands
There is not a brick to break except I let them crack my back
This is not the place we started but we’ve come this far to bark
Can you see me fighting with myself
Can you hear me screaming in your ears
Are my words too silent to make a little sense
Are you listening
Are you watching
Are you just passing by?
She wakes early at dawn
To watch the sun come up
She passes through doors at noon
To check on the blossoming field
She stares at the horizon at dusk
To wave sunset goodbye
She beholds the stars at night
As they glitter around the moon
She finds meaning in nature
And this becomes her creation.
