Paralysis of the mind forced them into the wheelchair of life
For themselves they refused to think and so they paid the price
They chose to make the story up as they went along
But this in itself failed from the start.
Many do not “think”, even though they think that they do
They don’t really analyze and create mental solutions first before the action.
Don’t let anyone tell you what’s truth and what’s real
Your mind is your gift and the knowledge you gain and use is your power, so turn the tables now, think for you, think free.

Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired
I wake up, I breathe, I feel sad
Lately I’ve had to make the extra effort
To say something, to say anything
Lately self doubts have filled my sky
Reminding me of what I cannot do
Lately all I see is inadequacy, worry, want
My cloudy thoughts won’t let me see the sun
Lately I’ve been feeling unmotivated
But I fight, I keep it moving, to write another day.
Cradle me on a rocking chair
Comfort me, dry the rain streaming down my face
Build me a boat, paddle me away
Let the currents take me there
As I watch the blue and white on the run
Hold my hands, help me cross this bridge unto the other side of this fear
I almost gave in
Excuses came to deceive my truth
But I know who I am and so I fled
You’re beautiful and I’m not just saying words
All that has happened and is to come is not a mistake
The dreams you had as a child, have they come true?
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do
Don’t let the pressure reduce you to a corner of your own life
Don’t dream small even though your minds eye fails to see farther
Live your life for you and no one else, all other things will fall into place.
Sound the alarm
Pound the tribal drums
Let this be a warning
To all those who have ears
“You can never be someone else”
So why die trying?
Maybe he truly loves you
Maybe he’ll do anything to see you smile
Maybe he’ll go to hades and back just to give you warmth
Maybe he cares way too much to see you sad
Maybe he’ll cross the Atlantic just to get to you
Maybe he’ll even take a bullet from your gun if that’s what you want
But do his actions speak louder than his words?
We don’t know how but somehow we’re here and the memories are made from the moment we open our eyes.
We scramble for a path, a truth to soothe the void inside of us
We inhale, we exhale and we know this is real.
As the waters flow endlessly and as the winds blow into a melody
We find ourselves in the highs and lows, still holding on to the hope of a spark and a tomorrow laced with mind peace
But life is short, so we must live now or never.
Sometimes you’ll get what you want
Other times you’d realize that the universe knows best.
We’re all in this maze and nothing has changed
Our minds are evolving and pictures are clearer but the fog remains.
Sometimes all you have to do is Trust and Do
Other times you’d realize that you should have.

Pats on the back led me to think that I was of age
That my wings had grown just enough for me to fly
I had a purpose, a calling
But the bad company; I was corrupted
I packed up and left my path, running wild into the darkness
I was lured to the death of me and I became another
I drifted away, further and further in the wrong direction
But I had to get lost to be found I realized
So here I am, hoping it’s not too late for you to resuscitate me.

Somehow I find myself safe in the shadow of your wings
The moment I let go, you took me away
Pictures became clear and I saw who you are.
Everyday you pave the way with your light
Leading me into your rest.
You’re everything, my only hope
Light in my clear darkness
You’re in me, I’m alive
