Innocently True

Quote of the day:
Paralyze resistance with persistence -Woody Hayes


Sometimes
i over hear them
speaking in silent tones
but a gentle breeze oftentimes
carries their conversation towards me

I'm reminded about the past
too often i forget about the future
today the sun smiled at me
i felt the linger i felt the mercy

I always was with them
but they never noticed
today they spoke out loud
they said the world was theirs
but even from where i hid
i sensed their inner fears

They talked about greatness
but all i ever felt was innocence


Current Listen: Lenny Kravitz -Calling all Angels
