Suffering in Pain
Anguish caught together like spikes of pressure
Re calling the last time
Crooked and twisted like pinnacles of fate
Like a swan floating calm,
serene above the surface,
I'm paddling like mad below.
Making sure the workflow flows.
I lie on my back and anticipate pain
As I wait to be ravaged again and again
I think "my life hasn't always been like this"
But of lately it's been more hit than Miss.
Single mother struggles hard
Children playing in the yard
She has changed now, must be strong
Daddy isn't here now, he's long gone.
All Beacuse Of You
All Because of You
To scream at the top of my lungs, to run through a field full grass
To climb to the top of a mountain, to shatter a room full of glass
THREE ORANGE CATS
I live in a house near three orange cats.
One's small, one's medium, one's gorgeously fat.
Raining Rocks and Sheep
From Llanberis near the steamer's track
peak in sight, no going back.
Twelve of us guardians
nineteen young hooligans
I knew a moment, a reunion.
You lifted me onto your shoulders, happily
carried my weight.
The heaviness of memories,
I gave you a kaleidoscope so you could see the world.
That is the plot.
Your cylindrical gaze rose
over the desert,still you saw a mosaic of glass,
manchesters gay village
It's so grotesque to see,
The live stock strolls in
Like lambs to the slaughter.
