if i’ll tell my story to myself
to entertain my state of mind
i won’t fill my space with self-pity
from feeling withdrawn and partly empty
if pretense would make me look
an upright person getting off the hook
stinking stories from the wicked backdoor
won’t break my heart when roars are washed ashore
i will trust my own values and beliefs
neglecting phony news thriving beyond limits
embracing pure thoughts without fear
they will be filled with honest hopeful cheers

Eyes…

look into my eyes
are they full of heartaches
or overflowing with love

do you see the tears in hiding
between my mind
and this caressing heart

look into my being
i have a soul to care
fastened to my prayers

lead my sight into
does it see only the near

or farther and beyond

how you rely upon me
taking all of these at face value
pushing aside trust as an issue

you know what all of these mean
the echoes you have in mind
are what my eyes clearly define…

Could you ?

when there’s no one i could turn to
when there’s no one i could trust
gone is the shoulder i could lay my head on
could i ask you to stay when there’s none ?

before i could lose my mind
before i forget what’s divine
my image could lose its importance
i ask, could you give me one more chance ?

one needs each other
to support each other’s dream
and to quote, “no one is an island”
could you lend me a helping hand ?
