That Gorgeous

I write these words so I can be heard
I write these words so I can be learned.
Pain in my mind Pain in my eyes.
Distraught with these thoughts I can't help but realize.
This is my time to stand up and shine
This is my time to get out of the line

I breathe in this oxygen
I cough and clear my throat
I fall to the dirt as I spit and choke
The world is trying to hold me back
Trying to keep me on their crack
As if I can't think for myself
The world is trying to think for me

Left in the dirt I stare to the skies
Suddenly the pain in my eyes
Washes away as I begin to now realize
Everything in life is of a great surprise.
I stop the spitting, I stop the choking
I breathe in this oxygen and I feel born again
I smile to these skies as I cry, I cry

These tears I shed are not because of what has been done
These tears I shed are not because my life seems worthless
These tears I shed are because these skies are gorgeous.

I spread my arms out, extended as if to fly
My smile grows wider and I laugh and I sigh
I fall backwards on to this dirt, my Mother Earth
With new thoughts and new feelings
New meanings and new beginnings
I am those skies, I am that gorgeous.

No one is your strength or guidance. If life is what you wish to live then do not bind your soul to something unreal. The creater nor the keeper can heal you for it is blind faith that leads you.

Love it! "These tears I shed are because these skies are gorgeous." and "I am those skies, I am that gorgeous." are wonderful lines!
