It was all you


Stretching my hand out to the sun

To hold on to what light I have left

Inside of what is left is of me

I weep in sorrow on all my past

Crushed on the time I have lost


It was all you that showed me a way

A sign that maybe there was still light

Inside of me

It was all you that showed me a vision

Of what could be


Casting me out to the shadows above

Looking inside myself

To see what good is inside me

But you knew there was something

Good buried somewhere in my soul


It was all you that showed my goodness

A sign that all that can be right

If I believed in myself

It was all you that showed me love

To where that maybe

Capture the Stars


She lifts up the curtains

And she wonders with gleam

She watches the moonlight stars

And smiles towards them

She lifts her arms up

And reaches out the window

She wonders how can she

Try and capture the stars

She reaches far out the window

And closes her eyes

Her hands start to glow and the room turns white

Her head shakes in fear and fright

She feels the points of the star

Upon her fingers

Her month is wide open and her eyes quickly awaken

She had captured the star

Her unbelieving eyes blink blankly at the star

Her arm draws in the light

And twists around her fist

To show the captured star

She feels magical, she is in peace

A captured star always brings a smile to a crying pair of eyes

In a world where fear and despair rules

The heaven and the stars can always lift us up in a world of pain

The bed glows in a holy white snow

And the girl lifts up her arm and views the star in her sights

A tear falls from her eye and touches the star

The room blows apart in a white glow

And her face turns white

Her tears of an unknown future dry in an instant

Her soul is blessed and she can understands

For she is very young but yet a star is very old

Throughout the ages, a star grows in wonder and magic

And watches the world with its light

She is touched by a star and its magic gives her insight and knowledge

And she is now beyond her years of knowledge

She opens her eyes with knowledge of a million years

And blows wind at the star and it rises up out the window

Out of the house and out of the air

Into the air and into space

She watches the stars with a new found wonder

She understand the past, present and future

But yet she is not fearful or sadness by her knowledge

Because the love in her heart knows one day she will become a star

Shaken and Shocked


Shaken and Shocked by the humans at this degree

They’re burning down the house of morals and humanity

Infested with the disease of greed and power

It’s poison filling the earth

Homosexual, bisexual, something of a lookablesexual

Personality thrown out the window, discrimination I say

Hate that look, dislike that look

Give ya couple bob to snob that proof

Why judge the book by the cover

While you look inside of one other

To find the longlife friend you so long to meet

What happened to the world of people searching of just elementary things?

Do you agree with me when I tell you the world is shaken and shocked?

Do you need the bloodshed of a young solider dying?

Or the pain in the eyes of a baby crying?

To get you to see

That the earth is still worthwhile

Touch the children as gladness fills their faces

Everyone one day will have no sadness

If we all start trying

Then no one will be crying…
