I’ve seen…

Standard

I’ve seen the motley shades of the sky
I’ve seen a little birdie learning to fly
I’ve seen the night steal over the sun
On a dreary winter afternoon

I’ve seen the sunkissed mountain peaks
I’ve seen caged animals trying to speak
I’ve seen a raging storm’s black dress
Fade away into nothingness

I’ve seen the azure waters of the sea
I’ve seen squirrels prancing on a tree
I’ve seen the mesmerizing sultry moon
Liven up even the most melancholy tune

I’ve seen some of nature’s prettiest sights
Sanguine mornings and dreamy nights
Masterstrokes of God’s skilled brush
That no evil in the world can touch
In every little thing there’s beauty to be found
All i have to do is to look around

Losing Myself

Standard

I was happy

& carefree

I was doing just fine

Along came

Education

And ruined my life

 

I wasn’t worried about

The perils

Tomorrow might bring

They taught me to

Anticipate the future

& I lost my will to sing

 

I loved not knowing

Where my path

Would lead today

They taught me to

Plan ahead

& I felt my excitement ebb away

 

My life was a kaleidoscope

Of colors

In every shade

They taught me to

Walk the line

& my colors faded into grey

 

The little things in life

Used to please me

The most

They taught me

To focus on the bigger picture

& my pleasures became lifeless ghosts

 

So profound

Was the effect

Education had on me

I went from being

A vibrant soul

To a sophisticated wannabe

I still search for

My former self

In the depths of my heart

Who knows, maybe one day

I’ll find her

& we’ll make a fresh start
