Wooden House

You step outside your wooden house

Into a world that is so unsure

Hoping to fill the void

Left within your broken heart

 

Out beneath the stars

Little voices of the night

Whisper in the wind

Calling for you to come and play

 

The moonlight dances on the lake

Making you feel wide awake

Shadows lead you to a path

Covered in the moonlit glow

 

Cautiously you make your way

To a land that’s so far away

Leaving all your fears behind

Marching to a beat divine

 

Flowers grow upon the path

Voices calling out your name

Trees begin their sacred dance

Swaying in the breezy night

 

Life appears before your eyes

Making you feel hypnotized

Slowly you leave your trance

And wake up in your wooden house.

Just Because

Just because you’re breathing

Doesn’t mean you’re living

 

Just because you’re smiling

Doesn’t mean you’re happy

 

Just because you’re laughing

Doesn’t mean you belong

 

So much is left hidden

In plain sight

 

Broken people hide their pain

So that it doesn’t hurt someone else

 

They hide so much inside their minds

That it hurts too much to live sometimes

Pray

You take a breath

Pray it gets you through

You hope today

Is not like before

`

You want to be

A different person

You wish and dream

Of happy tears instead of childhood fears

`

You want to sleep

Without the demons

You want to live

Without the feelings

`

You want to go

Without a plan

No return date

Or road map

`

Just leave the world

Far behind you

Leave the past

And all who knew you

`

Start all over

Try again

Pray today

Is not the end.
