• Bit of Spring

    I roamed around
    in the small bit of spring that I found
    and found some relief

    plagued by a doubt:
    there's nothing I've made in this life
    O reluctant thief

    weak heart: empty mind
    strong soul swell up
    hold all my thoughts aloft

    the stories we tell
    the works that we do; they repel
    and thus let us sleep

    but make me a man
    forgetting the paper in hand
    and only truth keep

  • Strength we Receive

    i don't know how to feel
    i guess this is the blues
    but why am i pretending this is news

    they say the sky is full
    soon snow will start to fall
    but all that i can do is stop and stall

    at least i know i've been here before
    not knowing how to get outside my door
    at least i know i've been here before
    feeling lost in my own home

    the longer I delay
    the closer is the snow
    but what if I just have no place to go?

    I believe that the strength we receive comes from
    something above you and me
    so hear me out, I'm praying out loud
    that the blues runs out



  • Sunlit Chill

    The road is long the wind is strong
    but still we keep on
    hand in hand, through lines in sand
    we'll hold up our head til our strength's gone

    a sunlit chill, a frigid still
    held until
    a blade of grass, made of brass,
    held up its head on the soft hill

    let me still and slow my mind
