privilege

I'm blessed to be a dreamer

What a chance to say what I believe in

They get locked away and thrown with the bleeders 

Another diamond to crush and sell to the leaders 

We live in a white fence, where privilege is our consequence 

Throw a prayer your way, or maybe sponsor to say I did it

Tell ourselves we're doing all we can do 

Not a care in the air that we're the fortunate few

Yes, we get poisoned by the ones who control us 

Bleach in our produce & a false treatment for cancer 

Our happiness is controlled by a candy shaped pill, then 10 more to cancel out the chain reaction

Fracture the earth until our foundation crumbles, give our clean water to mass kill the cattle

After all this greed and feed, it doesn’t compare to your lives getting stolen

All of this trouble is too much to handle for our complexion, but we have the privilege to not get involved

unspoken spark

After all these days

You're still what I think about as I fall asleep

You're still on my mind when I'm with someone else

There's an unspoken spark that ignited a flame in the park where I first knew you

I love asking you questions

I love hearing your answers

I feel that I know you

I feel that you want to trust me

I want you to know you can

I want you to feel safe

I will always be there when you need

& I know you'll do the same for me

As I earn your trust, my arms open up

You fall into them a little more every day

I let you borrow my hat that you love, so when you see it you think of me - and because I want to share the best of what I have with you

I truly believe this bond will last the rest of our lives

I'm so proud of you - so proud of all you accomplish, & so proud to call you my friend <3

shine

We'll shine like birds

Floating over the ocean

Shine like the stars

Lighting up the Black Sea

And when we're apart

Know that through all the commotion

I'll Shine my heart wherever you'll be

ocean

put your heart at least once in the ocean

if you don't try now you'll never feel the emotion

what we do at this time will determine who we are to ourselves - who we are to others

life lives on in a complicated fashion

organized crime and unfiltered passion

only the fortunate few are here to take the crown

perhaps we become the few when we decide that we deserve it

if I knew the end, would I love endlessly?

if I knew the climax, would I open up to you?

if we know where we go from a feeling in our gut - then what makes us try so hard for something we see as luck?

in any situation, I see beauty in your eyes

there's a spark inside that only time try's

the true revealer is that of nature

with our intention we haze the true creation

I want to fly to let me dreams be on top

and when I die it will be enough

I'll know where I was when it meant everything

I'll know when you make a single silent scream

you're dying inside knowing you can't stop the bus

you're crying outside with the words that I mutter

if this is the time that we end all our pain - will we stop this safe train, or will it become another thing in vain?

the words come to me in this state of challenge

i think I've found a new horizon to meet my creator

it's a beautiful realization to be the one to heal a nation

but what do we do when the people become their only weapon?

they backfire in an instant

life goes around in circles with an ever-evolving faith
