You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it. You say you love sun, but you seek shade when it's shining. You say you love wind, but when it comes, you close your window. So that's why I'm scared when you say you love me.
~Bob Marley


If I could write the lyrics

To a song about my life

You'd never understand the words

You'd never see it right


If I could write a poem

To make it sweet and clear

You'd get the meaning twisted

To something no where near


If I could write a novel

Of my every waking day

You'd have so many questions

Your mind a disarray


If I could draw a picture

In hopes you'd see me through

You'd only see the colors

It'd make no sense to you


If I could make a movie

And explain each tiny part

You'd only see the picture

You wouldn't see my heart
