How Can A Caged Bird Sing?

DownUp +4

How can a caged bird sing?
Behind bars of gold and brass;
With no perch of its own.
Here it sings a low sweet song,
How can a caged bird sing?
Locked away and out of sight;
No longer free to take flight.
Here it sings low and sweet,
How can a caged bird sing?
Looked at by many, but loved by few;
Here in this cage singing a song that is so true.
Singing low and sweet,
How can a caged bird sing?
With no care in the world;
And, no love of its own.
This sweet loving birds sings to you alone,
How can a caged bird sing?
Oh, how the caged bird sings.

You were only a dream

DownUp +2

At night when I dream,
You are all I dream about,
The guy I want,and hope you are,

The one thats meant for me,
No matter how hard I dream,
No matter how much I want you to be,

Every morning when I wake up,
I realize that you were only a dream,
and that it was never meant to be.

He loves me not

DownUp +6

He loves me, he loves me not
for him to leave would take all I’ve got
I try to be patient while i silently plea
cos he’s the one who means the world to me
as all the petals take their shot
the last petal falls….he loves me not

Demon within

DownUp +2

Everyone has a key,
A key into my mind,
They turn the key,
And they search,

They find my weakness,
And use it against me,
Why would they want to do that?
Do they want to destroy me?

Then they find it,
They find the demon within me,
For so long it was locked away,
Locked away in a cage,

Now that that cage is open,
The demon is unleashed,
They let it out,
And it won’t go back in,

No one can tame the beast,
Not even I,
But this demon, this beast,
This monster won’t back down,

I am the monster,
I am the beast, the demon,
Someone needs to get that cage,
And lock the demon away forever.

My Rose

DownUp +3

By nights long slumber
Never heeding my aching sorrow
Once again alone in nights cold clutch
Been so stupefied by emotion
Sight limited by clouding fear
Liquid runs down smooth but rocky cheeks
Self proceeds to wrongs rights
Voices commencing their anguish
Others their loath

Day by sun, night by moon
Neglecting their beautiful shine for me
Darkness swallows, and tastes bitter
Sewn eyes stay locked closed
Free eyes closed from hurt
Set my heart to flames
Then Dance in its painful light
Listen to it sizzle
And smile in delight

But is that who you are?
My wilting rose
Blossoming but again I cut your stem
How long will it be till your petals plunge?
Can I save what I nearly killed?
Everything’s more beautiful in their natural belonging
But is it you
My rose…
That belongs in nature or inside
In nature you fight the seasons
Inside you are free
Inside I can see you, hold you and care for you
Outside I can only visit
But is that what you want my beautiful flower?

In reality one deserves what one gets
No matter what they are or who they are
Whether you are the flower
Or the scissors that cut it
How many more years will it be the flowers will keep forgiving?
Or maybe they never forgave and we keep cutting

Now the pain has ended.
And I can only feel the worries of life creeping up to my dreams.
Those dreams that have become nightmares.
Nightmares that are no more than reality.

I have been told I act like him.
Is this true?
Will I end up like him?
The father he was to me but the father he isn’t.
Will I walk out on my family’s dreams? Only to be seen in their nightmares.

The tears stopped rolling down my cheeks.
The happiness is gaining acceptance in my cold life.
But the sorrow remains.
Not only for the tears.
For the memories I have wasted on no memories at all.

Secrets and lies

DownUp +14

Secrets and lies look where the lead us
Sharing our deepest fears to people we don’t trust
The holes getting deeper yet I continue down
Waiting for the moment everything overwhelms me and I can drown

I always make things worse and each time I break away a piece of my soul
Now i am all drained and stuck in reality everything’s out of control
Cautious and wary I can’t decide one form another
Am I that stupid to be fooled by their masks?

How could I say the things I have I should have told them straight
I won’t survive in no-man’s land i am going to crumple beneath the weight
Go to a distant place where nothing matters and no one knows
Until tomorrow when I do it all again we must wait to see what the outcome shows
