RainOne day again the rain shall fall, and wash away the trouble.The creeks and rivers will come back to life and once again begin to bubble.The leaves and trees will go back to green, and birds will sing their songsGardens will begin to grow again and bugs will go where they belong.One day again the rain shall fall, and paint the sky with grayThe dust will settle down for once, and be still for a dayThe ants will build their nests up high to keep from flooding outThey are prepared to face the end of this terrible drought.One day again the rain shall fall, and I shall stand out with itThe hair on my head soaking wet, as I close my eyes and embrace itThe water drips off my arms and fingers as I let I pour over meThe cool feeling and sound of pattering drops brings me pure sweet serenity.
No TearsI do not cry, I hold it inThat's the way it has always beenTears are not allowed to escape from my eyesInstead I put on a smiling disguise.I do not cry, I do not allow itBut sometimes it's hard, I do admit...My eyes stay dry until the time is rightWhen your back is turned, and I am alone at night.I do not cry, it shows my weaknessNot a single drop, for anyone, nor avis.You're not allowed to see me when I am upsetDon't ask me to show you, no abet.I do not cry, I am too full of prideYou will only see a single side.Just for you I will put on a smileAnd I will let you think what you want, all the while
HomeThis is too much, I hate this placeIt's always a time crunch, always a race.I'm surrounded by strangers, people I don't knowI just want to fall asleep, and wake up at home.I miss my own bed, and my messy roomI miss fighting with my sisters, and being promised doom.I miss good coffee in the morning, and my mothers hugsI miss stopping my dog from chewing on the rugs.This really sucks, I want to go home.In my little garden, just like a gnome.I miss my friends and everyone left behindBut I must stay, and at night, my teeth continue to grind.
Little BirdieOnce there was a little birdie, who lived outside the doorHe wanted to go inside, and hop up off the floor"Oh no," said his Mommy,"You must stay with me.""Litle birds are safest, sitting in the tree."Little birdie sighed, and gave his tale a fling."I don't think those old folks, quite know everything."So down flew little birdie, and Mr. Kitty ate him before he had time to blink,"Oh I am so sorry!" Little birdie cried, "I just did not think!"
DemonsI must face my demons and turn my weakness to strengthNo more keeping my fears at my arm's lengthI must pull them close and look them in the eyeAnd say "This is enough, alright?"I must face my demons and and show them no fearNo more running, my message will adhereI must pull them close and and look them in the faceAnd say "I am sick of you making me look like a disgrace."I must face my demons and stand my groundNo more being timid, my courage must be foundI must pull them close, and whisper in their ear,"You are finished, now leave from here."I must face my demons, and vanquish them,No more hiding, it's them I will endI must pull them close, with a sword in their throat,And say, "I am facing you, time for a demon fur coat!"
