Treasure Island

William Blake Beckett

(May 15,1995 / Denver, Colorado, United States of America)

Midnight in Mississippi


It's midnight in Mississippi.
I see no stars in the sky,
And I need none,
For I have no wishes.

All I need is nature.
She lulls me to sleep,
And should I have a nightmare
My friends are beside me.

The mighty river roars.
I do not hear it,
But feel it bringing life
To everything around me.

I am far from the city.
I find peace in the wind,
As it drowns out my thoughts
And I can fall asleep.

It's midnight in Mississippi.
I am warm even in Winter,
And rightfully so
Since I am with family.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
