A thinking one
The ship is sinking one
See the bright side then
The light goes dim again.
Keep smiling though
You feel like crying so
No one wants to see.
Be who they need you to be.
Do your best they said
Face in the books you’ve read
Reading what’s in the gaps
The white lines drawing your map.
A road less travelled by
It’s hard to explain your why.
You feel things deeper
Below the surface emotion seeker.
The tormented muse
With the short temper fuse.
Tap into that well
Where the feelings dwell.
Use that energy for good
Because you are so misunderstood.
The artists, the poets, the dreamers are we
How we wish they could see what we see.
They too could feel the joy and pain
Not everything would be so mundane.
We are the color in your skies
The ones to always ask why.
When the rain falls on your face
We are the ones who tell you to taste.
Feel everything that life can give
So when it is done you can say “I lived.”
Love elephant and want to go steady?
