"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson


My hallelujah has no meaning now,
The chorus fades away,
My praises stab the sides of those,
Who know what i want to say.

My smile causes raindrops,
To fall right from the sky,
My laughter causes screaming,
from those who've seen me cry.

My dancing forces stillness,
As they watch me defy the world,
My strength causes an outrage,
for I am supposed to be just a girl.

my life is more like death,
T those who wish me dead,
My dreams are only nightmares,
Once you've seen inside my head.

My love could kill a nation,
with the falsehoods it may entail,
My hatred helps the world to grow,
As I become so frail,

my strength is just a weakness,
I am fading with my success,
My blessings curse the world,
As i try my very best.

My hallelujah has no meaning,
As my song fades into grey...
My praises turn to pleading,
As I beg that I may stay...
