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


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.
