same way facing plain as day
same way facing plain as day
same way facing
plain as day
plain as day
plain as day
same way facing plain as day
same way facing plain as day
same way facing
plain as day
plain as day
plain as day
.
take me out of context
if you will
i don’t belong there
for what i care to share
has no great bearing on my mood
please don’t think me rude
as such is never my intention
nothing i create relates to tension and disquietude
.
don’t mean to intrude
there’s nothing here to misconstrue
for while views may well be my own
there’s little bitter to my tone
would not belittle those i know
releasing spittle as i flow
there is no brittle undertow
to what i riddle as i go
.
we need to feel
before we heal
and i’m the first to see revealed
the hurts we face and bitter pills we swallow
fed against our will
while any sorrow on the page
is gone tomorrow
by the way
thus i feel honoured to remain
the same way facing
plain as day
.
plain as day
plain as day
.
should i write something melancholic
doesn’t mean i’m seeking tonic
should i paint a waspish scene
then doesn’t need be vitriolic
should my verses be romantic
doesn’t make me set to frolic
just a man as open-handed as i’m honest
.
whatever the day’s theme
i am as calm as i’m serene
feel just as charmed to breathe the air of chance
as keen to lead a fair advance
my bleeding heart i prise apart to preconceive the seeds of art
guess that’s just the way this dreamer dreams
.
no aim to maim
no names to shame
no games to play
no blame to place
should swords be raised
then i’ll abstain
from making others pain my gain
with great compel to make the world a better place to be
with great compel to make the world a better place to be
.
seems like such a waste to me
to venture forth ungraciously
to form opinions hastily
accelerate decree
when i can elevate for free
esteem the celebratory
.
it seems inane to not be on the same side
brace the same tide
breach the breaking waves and brave the wild
in favour reconciled
remain beguiled by life
when hate is rife
place weight behind creative drive
to vaporise the vitriol
of vacant eyes residual
in bid to fall with grace
and same way rise
in bid to fall with grace
and same way rise
.
i am a gentle lion brave
with monumental wealth to say
and not a syllable divisible
conditional
disdained
no bad blood bubbles in my veins
for i’m untroubled in my gaze
a noble soul of oath unchanging
to remain the same way facing
reawakening to nature
plain as day
reawakening to nature
plain as day
reawakening to nature
plain as day
.
we need to feel
before we heal
and i’m the first to see revealed
the hurts we face and bitter pills we swallow
fed against our will
while any sorrow on the page
is gone tomorrow
by the way
thus i feel honoured to remain
the same way facing
plain as day
.
plain as day
plain as day
plain as day
plain as day
.
