The Alleyway and I

The alley way seems dark Secluded little place And some might even say Here danger lurks with its evil face Yet somehow I’m not scared Though the light is dim Knowing morning comes after night Keeps doubt to a minimum So here I am Alone I stand A shadow in a distant land At a […]

Happy to be Alive

A pink array of candy floss across a powder blue sky A breath of fresh air, smile across my face I don’t even wonder why Dancing on the inside the rhythm of the day Freedom within the Spirit the melody carries me away The drum beat of life the chorus of our hearts the sweet […]
