1.
The sun after rain Kisses my face I remember to laugh I remember to smile again Here I am Here I am Now I am alive
2.
Do you remember the time I was sad And I cried out for you Do you remember the time I was sad You said that you never knew Do you remember the time I was sad And you just looked right through I laid in my bed Checking check my phone I laid in my bed Pretending not to feel alone
3.
Hoping for peace within my heart Hoping for peace when we’re apart Trying to swim against the waves Breathing in water I’m not unsafe
4.
Living life with the dirty But I can’t say a thing I’m afraid of your anger So I hold mine in In this time for reflection I don’t see mirrors I just feel the suction towards Hiding and fear Tip toeing and quiet And still I am seen Squished into a madness Skipping bodily needs In this time for reflection I don’t see mirrors I just feel the suction towards Hiding and fear
5.
A piece of the resistance Floats down the stream A purple flower whispers All that we could have been I heard we had it coming Riding down the line Will we be ready To give back the time? I smell the resentment Boiling fear When you hardly can breathe You don’t help those who’re near I wish we could find peace Smile in harmony That requires changing Who tells our stories That requires changing Who tell our stories
6.
There’s a weed planted in my brain Roots dig deep thirsty for my thought water It says quick quick quick It says check check check check It says who is a success? Six gulls soar from the misty gray Scanning for the tiniest prey Their prey is “I’m not there” Their prey is “I don’t have it” Their prey is “I’m not whole Until I’ve got it” The sea says “So what? Who knows what anyone has? You know more than anyone What you really have”

Don’t fucking talk to me Please I need alone time I need some quiet please Some space to think
