I’m not coming home.

I’m on the road again
Walking down the streets, that I have done so many times before
Driving down the roads, like any other day
Only today I notice the things that I’ve never seen before
This time I want to remember every branch on every tree
Every crack in every footpath
Every shop and every detail in the windows
I want to remember my home as it is today

For today is the day that I leave my home behind
The day that I break my family apart
In hopes to find a better life across the big big blue sea

I’m on the road again, only this time I’m not coming back
As I fly across the big blue sea my family are at the airport
Holding each other for support, hoping and longing that one day
I can return to the land that was once my home

Until things change I shall be gone forever more
My family shall be apart unless there change
I will always have them in my heart
The pain of being apart will only grow stronger the longer I’m away

I’m on the road again only this time I’m not coming home
My future is brighter across the big blue sea
I wish it was different, but this is the way it must be.
I’m not coming home unless there is change for me.

The way you are is the way you are

The way you are is the way you are
Don’t let the views of a few change who you are
Don’t let the mean world change who you are
stay, stay true to you,  stay who you are

Keep it true keep it you
deep deep down you know what to do
keep your mind safe, keep your mind you

The way you are is the way you are
Don’t change, don’t change the way you are
As you are wonderful the way you are
Don’t let the views of a few change your view on the world
Let your outcome be bright and true to you
Don’t let the mean world change who you are

The world is vast and wide
The world can be dark and blind
The world can show you the pain
But the world can be a wonderful joyous place
All you have to do is look around
You shall see love and joy, people caring for each other

So don’t let the mean world change who you are
don’t let the views of a few change who you are
Keep it true keep it you
deep deep down you know what to do
keep your mind safe, keep your mind you

The way you are is the way you are
Don’t let the views of a few change who you are
Don’t let the mean world change who you are
stay, stay true to you,  stay who you are

My heart will heal

When the wind blows my heart rolls
You took my heart in the dark of the night
You took my breath away, I can’t breathe without you
You left me me seeking the light, a world filled with darkness
My world is empty without you
Can’t you see what you do to me
Can’t you feel the pain you left in me
Can’t you see what you do to me
Why did you leave me, broken in the street
Why did you not see how much you meant to me

My heart will never heal
My life will stand still
My world will end
Until the we meet again
Why did you leave me when I needed you most
One day we will meet again
That day my heart will be whole again.
That day my heart will heal.

What matters to me fades away to you.

 

What matters to me fades away to you.
What matters to you fades away to me
We each see the world in a different way
You think my ways are strange and weird
I think your ways are strange and weird
If we look past our own ways
Look with fresh eyes
Don’t judge and try to understand
Maybe we will both see the world in a different light
Maybe we will see our ways are are the same
Maybe if there was more understanding there would be less war
Maybe if we looked without judgement we would see clearly
My way and your way are different
Different does not mean wrong
Different does not mean dangerous
Different does not mean harmful
Different means I do it my way you do it your way
Don’t fear difference
Don’t be fearful to be different.

Are you Alive?

Have you checked your pluse?
Is it racing? Are you Alive?
Do you enjoy your day?
Do you live it your way?
Did anyone sway your judgement today?
Do you live your life your way?
Life is there each and every day its not going away
Its up to you how you spend your day
You have the power to be happy
You have the power to be free
You have the power to be you
Don’t let people control your thoughts
Use your thoughts and your words
Don’t let the words that flow from your mouth be the words of another’s thoughts

I need you to be mine

Life without you would be pointless
You are mine and there is no denying
My love for you is true
Life without you would be meaningless
You are my day, my night, my light
I need you to be mine
The way I feel when we are apart
Is not the art of pain its just pain
You need to see that I need you to be mine
It’s not a want its a necessity to me
I need to be in close proximity
I need to breathe the air that was once in your lungs
I need to touch you, hold you, be with you
I need you to hold me tight
Never let me go
Never Leave me
For without you, my day would be night.
There would be no more light.

This Crazy World

In this Crazy mixed up world we need to take the good with the bad.
More often than not we focus far too much on the bad and don’t live for the good.
We need to feel the joy, more than the sorrow
We need to feel the love, more than the pain
We need to know what it feels like to be hurt
So we can appreciate the love
We need to experience the bad to know when to grab the good and hold on to it.

In this crazy mixed up world we need to focus more on action than on words
Words can be hurtful, they bear more pain than a knife through a vein
Words can break you down and tear you apart
but at the heart of it all, words are just words

This world has gone crazy taking an eye for an eye in every sense of the word
You hurt me, I hurt you, My family hurts your family, your family hurts my family
When will it end, when will we see that this world belongs to nobody
The land is not ours, the oil is not ours, the people cannot be owned
We live in the same world. We have the same minds, We want the same things

When will this crazy world end the pain and suffering from worlds end.
The images we see are beyond me
My minds eye can’t see why the world wants to hurt each other.

Be free, Be one, Be all.
I want the world to think first act later.
What if I was wrong and you were innocent, What if I attack you in case you might attack me?
For sure that will start a war, all over a ‘what if?’
The world is made up of too many What If’s and maybes
I need to know that my future sons and daughters will be born into a world where ‘what if?’ is not an answer.

This crazy world needs to slow down and see that we all need to work with each other to unite in the fight that is peace in this world
Stop the wars, stop the fights, listen with open minds, listen without judgement, Listen.
Listen to each other.

Family

Family means different things to different people.
While you are born into one family
You don’t always belong to that family.
Family is not formed by blood.
Family is formed by a bond encased in trust
Family is formed by love
Family is formed by caring for each other
Some people find this bond within their birth family
Others search a life time to find it.
Family is not always about blood.
Family is for everyone
You can find a family in your loved ones
You can find a family in your friends
You can find a family in a stranger
You can find a family in your heart.
As long as you have love, you have family.
As long as you have someone to care for, you have family.
As long as you have trust, you have family.
As long as you have someone that cares for you, you have family.
Family is formed in many ways
Family is Family.

What Once was Shall never be again

What once was shall never be again
For what’s done is done and cannot be undone
Why dwell upon the things that cannot change
When there are so much to achieve
What once was shall never be again
Don’t worry for the furture shall bring what is meant to be
Don’t sit in the past when the future awaits your presents
Don’t stay still when the world passes you by
Don’t dwell on the untouchable
What once was shall never be again
Never fear for what is meant to be shall be
If your day has not happened, it was not due to be yet.
You can’t undo the past, you can’t change what has happened.
What once was shall never be again
This is time for a new,
This is time for change,
This is time to allow your being to come to peace
This is time to free your mind from the clutter of of the past
This is time for the future to seek to come true
Make time for you,
Make time for your needs
This time shall happen again, make it count
Make this time work for you
Make this time about you
For what once is shall never be again.
