BRIGHT BLUE SKY


BRIGHT BLUE SKY

_________________

IN THE SECONDS

THAT PASS

AND WE ALL

HAVE THE ABILITY

TO FIGHT FOR

WHAT IS RIGHT

I REMEMBER

A TIME WHEN

FEAR RULED

MY MIND

AND I WOULDN'T

LET IT GO

NOW ONLY

BLISSFUL PEACE

IS HERE

THERE IS A

KIND OF BEAUTY

IN THE IMPERFECTION

OF FUCKING

THINGS UP

AND YET IT

CREATES SOMETHING

WONDERFUL

IF IT WASN'T PERFECT

THE CHANGES

THAT PRESENT THEMSELVES

FROM

VISIONS

TO DREAMS

TO

HALLUCINATIONS

IN THE IMAGINATION

OF A CREATIVE MIND

FROM SHADOWS

WALKING ON EARTH

TO THE RAIN

WASHING OVER

AND BRINGING

COLD LIKE DEATH

THE SHIVERS

RAN

AS I RAN

TO SURVIVE

SURVIVE THAT

WHICH WAS IN MY MIND

AND THAT

WHICH WAS REAL

CRASHED DOWN

I SURVIVED

THE REAL

I SURVIVED

THE FALSE

TOOK AWHILE

TO GET BACK TO ME

FROM A TRIP

I DIDN'T WANT TO GO

ON

NEVER EVER

AGAIN

WILL I WALK

THAT WALK

I LEFT IT BEHIND

LIKE A BAD MEMORY

IN A LIFETIME AGO

PEACE IS HERE

AND IN HERE

ITS CHANGED ME

I LOOK TO THE

SKY AND I CAN'T

NOT SMILE

I CLOSE MY EYES

AND SEE THINGS

I SAW

THINGS THAT WAS

AND

I SMILE

ERASING THE

DARKNESS

WITH NOTHING BUT

THE BLISSFUL

SWEETNESS

OF

WHEN ALL WAS RIGHT

LOCKED INSIDE

AND YET FREE

OPENING

THE DOORS

THROUGH THEM I WALKED

CIRCLED IN FIRE

WASHED BY WATER

BREATHING IN

THE AIR OF ZILLIONS

THE TINY

PARTICLES OF LIFE

DIGGING

MY FEET INTO

THE DEEP GROUND

TO SOOTH

ROOTING ME

LIKE A TREE

AND OUT

TO THE EXPANSES

OF THE IN BETWEEN

OF WHAT IS

CALLED THE VOID

AND THE GALAXIES

AND STARS

OF THE UNIVERSE

TO THE WORDS

OF THOSE

THAT LIVE IN THE

SILENCE

AS SILENT HALLS

FALL

AND OPEN IN

AWAKEN EXPANDED

MOMENTS

OF THE LITTLE DEATH

I WONT WALK

A PATH

THAT ISN'T MINE

AND THEY

ALL WALK AROUND

ME IN THERE

OWN LITTLE WORLD

WITH THE

LACK OF SUGAR

IN MY COFFEE

THE BLACK

TO THE

LATTE I MAKE IT

SO ITS BEARABLE

FROM THE

BITTER

TO THE MILDER

STATE

ITS LIKE MY LIFE

YOU MAY NOT

HAVE ALL THAT

OTHERS TAKE FOR

GRANTED

AND YET INSTEAD

OF SAYING

THIS IS ALL THERE IS

SO WHY DO I TRY

YOU TAKE WHAT

YOU ARE GIVEN

AND WORK

WITH IT

TO MAKE IT

WORK FOR YOU

AND THEN

ALL COMES

TOGETHER

AND IS

TOTALLY WORTHWHILE

FOR IT MAY NOT

BE AS SWEET

OR AS NICE

BUT ITS

CERTAINLY

JUST AS

GOOD GOING DOWN

TO TAKE

THAT THIRST AWAY

IT FEELS GOOD

TO HAVE THE SENSES

THE ABILITY

TO TASTE

TO SEE

TO HEAR

TO BE

TO BREATHE

TO EXPRESS

TO LIVE

WHETHER WE

ROAM

OR WE STAY

SECURE

THERE IS ALWAYS

A PLACE

WE LAY OUR

HEADS DOWN

AND REST

TO REFRESH

IN THE NEW SITES

WE SEE

WHETHER

ITS THE SAME

PATH YOU TAKE

EVERY DAY

THERE IS ALWAYS

SOMETHING THERE

THAT WASN'T THE OTHER DAY

WHETHER ITS

IN THE SEASONS

CHANGING

THE PEOPLE COMING

OR GOING

OR THE SIMPLE

CHANGES OF

THE DIRECTION

YOU CHOOSE TO GO

LIFE IS

WHAT WE MAKE IT

LOVE IS

WHAT WE GAIN

FROM IT

AND ALLOW TO STAY

OR CHOSE

TO LET GO OF

AND

ITS WHAT

WE CHOOSE

TO BE

SO KNOW THIS

FROM NOW

ON

I WILL LOOK

IN THE SKY

AND

SEE WHAT

NO ONE ELSE SEES

AND SMILE

THE BIGGEST SMILE

THERE IS

FOR I AM HERE

ABLE TO WALK IT

TO SHARE IT

TO FEEL IT

AND TO BE

WHETHER ITS

COLD OR HOT

SWEET SMELLING

OR ROTTEN

SWEET OR BITTER

THERE ARE

ALWAYS WAYS

TO BE HAPPY

AMONG THOSE

THAT WISH YOU NOTHING

BUT ILL

WHETHER

ITS HISTORY

OR IN THE NOW

ITS THE FACT

WE HAVE

THE NOW

THAT COUNTS

SO THAT TOMORROW

WE CAN LOOK

AND SAY THOSE

WERE WONDERFUL TIMES

ITS THE MEMORIES

THAT KEEP US

ALIVE

IT IS THE WAY

WE EXPRESS WHO WE ARE

THAT KEEP US

IN LOVE

AND NOT HATE

ESPECIALLY

WHEN PEOPLE

WILL COME AND SAY

THEY WANT

OR TAKE

OR SEEK

FOR WHATEVER

IT IS THAT IS

LACKING IN THEM

HOPE THEY

FIND IT

AND CAN USE

IT BETTER THAN I COULD

I WILL GIVE

IT GLADLY

NO NEED TO TAKE IT

THERE ARE

WAYS TO ESCAPE

THE RAT RACE

WITHOUT

RESORTING

TO THE DARKSIDE

OF BEING

I MAY NOT HAVE

A LOT OF RICHES

YET I AM

VERY RICH

IN THE GRACE

FROM OTHERS

AND HOW I

WORK WITH THE LITTLE

THAT I AM GIVEN

TO KEEP

MY HEART

MY HEAD

IN SYNC

THERE IS NO WAY

TO FIND THAT

IT JUST IS

DEEP WITHIN

AND

STAYS

WHERE NO ONE

ELSE CAN TAKE

WHY SHOULD

I NOT SHARE

WHO I AM

WHAT I BELIEF

OR WHAT I CAN CREATE

WHY SHOULD

I STAY

IN A CLOSET

AND SIT ON A SHELF

LIKE A BOOK

NEVER OPENED

NEVER VIEWED

NEVER

OH NO NOT I

I AM A BOOK

THAT HAS BEEN

READ AND READ

AND READ

AND OPENED

MANY TIMES

BY MANY DIFFERENT FACES

AND THAT IS

THE BLESSING

IN THE CURSE

OF WHAT IT TRULY

MEANS

TO BE

IN THE SPACE

OF HUMANITY
