Stand up straight Regain posture Commands ring my ear Always feared Never experienced They are still around You ducked life as it ought to have been Take pen and paper They endure Your self doubt exhillirations All combined and accepted How to be sure? (c)near_lane7
Lines of discontent Drawn out for decades It doesn't make sense Keep on going scratch and muddy Self-righteous behaviour Why bury yourself Diminish family Isolate friends Can't see a light Dullness sets in Where are you now This battle you won't win (c)near_lane7
Years as a loner Under the big changing Sky work and commitment Family shared, misbelief a far cry Yet down in his heart A burning light Hidden, secretly shielded Condescending bullies outside Illumination never extinguished Shined at an occurence Where clashes opened windows Into a new bright world He had to find a deed personal To give it all he had Persona physic in real time No apprehensions met Taking the reign of his gatekeepers' soul Chose desires to be freed To find freedoms mole His mind at ease A song danced his whistle This lad with a brithel (c)near_lane7
Questions his intentions When he starts his battered truck Ready to take him places In awe when he realizes He left Is it nowhere or somewhere Forced to judge he is alone He keeps driving Enters a roundabout Full circle on the inside lane Deciding on an exit Not now he is playing his game Indecision marred his intention Second right for going south Stop for gas Back in your seat His intention is To be about Does his thing no frowns now clear Ready to go Enters a new lifegoals' pier (c)near_lane7
Born into this world, that's filled with color Hoping just to be kind to one and other A blank canvas, on a artists wall Moulded like a flower, ever so small. Actions you take, steps you make Decisions you've made, due to someone's aid A painting, brushed by the colors all around you All these colors, but which one to choose? Maybe indigo, or teal to be as strong as steel Or sapphire is your style, a black fire that's versatile Turquoise if you're weird, cyan too Ultramarine to be feared, or just an ol midnight blue. All these colors to look up to But in the end, we are all just shades of blue.
