Breaking Away


I’m feeling this feeling inside of me.
Don’t know where I’m going, you see
Its tearin’ a hole, under your control
I can’t believe the years you stole.

You will never take that from me.
You will never see. I will never be.
Who would ever known where I’d be today
You never believed in my yesterday.

Now I’m cryin, I’m dyin to see my future
havin' sewn my heart with a natural suture
Now everyone respects me, life is never steep.
No one will ever take that from me, wake me from this sleep.

I never gave up, I’m not afraid
Barley breathing in the shade, on an ambitious crusade.
I have reached the peak, you could never see
I disagree; the view looks beautiful to me.

Don’t know where I’m going, you see
But I see my soul fleeing,
The lord has been my friend, keeping me from condescending
I won’t bend, pulling my life from the end.

Now the end is the beginning
The beginning of a whole new thinning.
The purpose to shine in the blind
My mind free to unwind from the thick outer rind.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
