ALL I HAVE
My hands are shaking, I cannot see
The paper is fluttering, isn’t it meant to be?
My dreams and hopes are flitting away,
Will they float? Will they fall? My mind is at unrest
If only there was courage and patience, it would have been the best.
The sword remains poised, ready to strike,
My heart yearns to see the little blue ocean.
But it doesn’t flow, I cannot begin,
My hands are still shaking and I still cannot see.
That impending doom, that dark future
Those frightening cages, it cannot be!
I need a choice, I need an escape
Is this all I have in me?
