Dark Days

I see the light in your darkest days

I see the moon on a moonless night

I look forward to the sun rising after it has set

I choose to see light even on the darkest days

Easy Love

If loving was easy

If to be loved were all that

Then why are there people 

Who still feel lonely all the time?

I sleep tonight with the heaviest of heart

But hoping that I wake tomorrow to a brand new start

Crooked Smile

I wipe away my tears

And show them my smile that’s crooked

I hide away my fears

They will never know.
I sway and sing

Like the great pretender that I am

They don’t know the heartache it brings

When they laugh and talk behind me.
But I walk away stronger

And don’t mind the negatives

I come out to be bolder

They could never know.

Sadness and Rain

And even the sad ones 

Smile when the rain falls

Count

Count the happines

Not the sadness

Count the heartbeats

Not the heartaches

Count the stars

Not your worries

Count your blessings

Always

A Slice 

I want a slice of cake for each struggle

A slice of pie for each sadness

A bit more of both just because I feel like sulking

And prefer to eat more than talking

A slice of cake for happiness

A slice more for craziness

The Sea Maiden 

She was lost at sea

Floating far away

She forgot what it was like, before he

Came her way
She would have drowned 

And probably preferred it

Had she not heard the call of another 

Who told her to start over 

Such A Chore

When did love become a chore?

When did effort became so tiresome?

When did happiness became scarce?

Music suddenly sounds stale

Nothing is making sense.
You drag your feet but get nowhere 

And everything around you is darkness
When did these fall apart?

When did everything became such a chore?

Better Still

I didn’t know, I never did

Until it was too late

The anger mixed with sadness

And then there was hate.

I tried to rid of it all

Start over and be myself once more

But I have to be stronger still

A lot to be done to settle the score.

But I know I can do better and be better.
