I'm Waking to a New Beginning

Updated on July 29, 2014

After reading this lyrical poem, what do you think of it? ( 5 Stars Being the Best)

See results

I'm waking up
Feeling new
Got nothing on my mind
But me and you
Can't escape right now
This feeling's so high
I got diamond tear drops
Falling from my eyes

Take it off
Jumping in
I'm washing all the sins
From my feet to my chin
Not giving up but giving in
The weight of what you left me's
Not paper thin

I wanna see
Life from the beginning
When it's just ending

I wanna breathe
New life into me
To set my soul free

Go to work
Get laid off
Gotta move somewhere else
Can't get enough
No job, no room, no place to sleep
They don't worry who's under my wing
Is more than me

Take modern games
Luxuries
Put them up and sell them all
They don't mean a thing
Don't look me in the eyes
Those sorry lips
Just hold my hand
And we'll live the sticks

I wanna see
Life from the beginning
When it's just ending
I wanna breathe
New life into me
To set my soul free
