Free Like A Bird
Freedom is like a bird; It is the wind that cools your face, The sun burning on your skin When the only place left
Nature Talks To Me
Everyone says nature does not talk, They say it just stays there, They say it does not even explain. Everyone says nature is just nature,

The Pessimist And The Optimist
Along by the road, two man came by; One brought a grimace, The other one a smile. They met at the edge of the lake,
As Good As
If I give the gun to the murderer, I am as good as him. If I throw lots of paper away, I am as good as the tree cutter.
An afterlife many need Though the mind can kill And only with one thought Sad it can make you feel.
I Do Not Blame You
I do not blame you, My beautiful friend, I do not blame you. I do not blame you
Beginning And End
Raining that morning was. Huge, black clouds covered the sky. But there it sat, in the tree in front,
If You So Love Me
I still remember when I told you To come for me as fast as you could. And I stood waiting at the stairs Bewailing for you to come,
Life was once what scared us all. It was the way we feared, the way we hid,
In The Past I Never Saw
Today my skin hears And my ears feel. My eyes taste the moment, while my hands see it quiet in front.
You, My Ocean
Ocean, you who never protest. You are the heart of my body, The wings of my bird. You are the light of my sun,
Some think That when you fall in love You are giving yourself to someone else. Some think
When You Show Me
When will you believe me? The man came by and said. I looked at his face And with a grimace said:

Free Like A Bird
Freedom is like a bird;
It is the wind that cools your face,
The sun burning on your skin
When the only place left
Is nature and the rest.
