In The Midst Of Adversity

Adversity can challenge our beliefs

A belief of how we truly see life

Can take things in strife

But that’s the nature of life

It’s never going to be glitter and sunshine

The bad days turn us into who we are

Leaving scars to determine who we truly are as one

Could this be the awakening of the rising sun?

The term adversity is used by many but who actually goes through it?

Makes you wonder why people struggle so much in life

Then you fly higher than a kite once you feel that adrenaline rush

In the midst of adversity can only show our true colors

Inside My Head

Living inside my head

Everything between human flesh is red

Hiding myself from the real world that I dread

Seeing if I mead

Creating fantasies in my head that I tread

Will I ever stop living inside my head?

When I’m in there I don’t feel dead

Is it something that I said?

Oh I forgot I’m inside my head

We all do it from time to time

Makes me feel like a basketball player dropping dimes

Now I’m starting to rhyme

It feels like a bad crime

Hearing the wind ringing the bells making them chime

Making me get rhymes like dimes

Life isn’t always a straight line

It never will be from time to time

For The Dreamers

For The Dreamers

This one is for the dreamers

Where we turn dreamers into believers

Overachievers and self esteemers

Fighting for a dream that no one else sees

That’s the truth but for you and me

Please don’t let those dreams die

As we know time flys right by

We will look in the night sky

Thinking how we can fly

It’s because we are dreamers

Doing the impossible instead of working at the cleaners

We are the dreamers
