The muse whispered in my ear

The muse whispered in my ear, she sways my thoughts, persuades my dreams
The muse whispered in my ear, she showed me what I could be
She showed me that I could float above the sky and shine like a star
She whispers in my ear to tell me how great I can be.

If only I could believe in me as much as she believes in me
If only my fear was not greater than by belief
The muse whispers in my ear, she sways my thoughts, persuades my dream
She can see beyond my time, she can see how great I could be

She sings like an angel in my ear, she sings like an angel in the night
If only I could show her to the world, she could show them what I could be
If only I could show her to the world she could sway their thoughts of me

The muse whispers in my ear, she sways my thoughts, persuades my dreams
She is part of me, if only I did not hide her from the world, then they could see how great I could be
If only I did not lock her in a cage as soon as people saw she was me
If only I could set her free, she could show the world what is inside of me
She stays by my side, day and night, never leaving my sight

The muse she whispers in my ear, she sways my thoughts, persuades my dreams
She show me what I could be, if only I could believe in me as much as she believes in me
She sings like an angel in the night, she soars high above the sky, she shines bright in the dark of night.
If only my fear was not stronger than my belief, I could be what I am meant to be

She is part of me, if only I could free her from the cage that she sits patiently
If only I could show her to the world, she could show them what I could be
She could sway their hearts, persuade their minds

The muse she whispers in my ear, sways my thoughts persuades my dreams.
The muse she is part of me. She is me.

When the River flows

When there is a river in your heart that cannot be stopped
Let the river flow to a natural end let it flow through your soul
Let the river show you the path to follow

When there is a river in your heart that cannot be stopped
Follow the flow, let it guide your soul
Let the river be your guide

When there is a river in your heart that cannot be stopped
Let the river flow through your soul
Let it show you what you can be
Let it show you what you can do

When there is a river that flows in your heart don’t let it stop
Let the river flow never stop what the heart needs
Never stop what the heart needs
Never let go of your soul, keep it safe

When there is a river in your heart, let the flow be your guiding light
Let the river be who you are. Follow the flow, follow the flow
What would you do if the river never flowed through your heart
What would you do if you never had a guide for your soul

When there is a river that flows through your heart
Never create a damn to stop the river from flowing
Where it needs to go, keep the flow natural
Let it go where it needs to flow

The river will flow the way it needs to go, don’t stop the flow
When there is a river in your heart that cannot be stopped
Don’t even try to stop it.

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.
