    somedays it seems that
    the sun is shining just for me
    just to kill me slowly with it's
    heat and ultra violet rays
    and the air surrounding me
    sticks close to suffocate me and steal
    the clean cool air from my
    breathing space

    yes

    some mornings i wake up
    questioning my sanity
    why do i think these thoughts
    and why can't i get that lump
    out of my throat
    is there any easy way to cut
    it free without
    crying
    is there any happiness
    any true joy
    does God hear me...

    yes

    some days are just harder
    to face than others but
    in the corner of my sanity room
    (sanitarium)
    there's some strength left
    for me to make it and breathe
    until i can smile at the moon....

    don't let this world drive you crazy
    stay strong
    yes you have your sanity

    cause the world catches me off guard too in believing that Iam the one who is crazy but it's this crazy set up that we live in that's crazy not us

    And you know...

    In that corner
    the light of the rays
    beams at high velocity
    and you find yourself
    in the palms of your
    hands
    praying away
    demonz
    that don't care if no one else
    understands
    how you feel,
    why you hurt,
    if you laugh out loud

    until something touches
    your spirit
    and guides your
    delicate move

    Peace
    ~ Child of God
    be still and let
    Him comfort you...

    some days...

    are harder to face
    but with GOD's love and grace
    there's nothing we can't face
    when you wake on those mornings
    with heavy burdens to bare
    look first to the FATHER
    and know that HE care
    look next to the family
    if only for a smile
    then, take a moment to meditate
    you can go that extra mile

    One.
