    Breath baby breath
    for you are beautiful
    so they say everything should come with ease,
    but easy it's not.
    No one knows the battles you've fought.
    Posession .
    They feel you can be bought.
    Soul searchn',
    what you're looking for can't be sought.
    Breath baby breath
    for you are beautiful
    so they say everything should come with ease.
    Placing the world on your shoulders.
    Too eager to please.
    World blinded by you ouside actions it seems.
    Not knowing your inner decapitation from unfulfilled needs,
    but still continuing to chase big dreams.
    Breath baby breath
    for you are beautiful
    so they say everything should come with ease.
    Physical features determining judgement of you.
    To the world you are a magnificent view.
    Magnificent not being a word you'd choose
    to describe life's paths you've travelled through.
    But breath baby breath
    for those who say its easy could NEVER walk in your shoes.

    hi mochablaze
    it's not always easy
    you made a point, that sometimes we
    got to take the time to breath
    but the path we travel makes it harder day by day
    and that path may be no more then
    going to work and coming home
    so sad..Nice poem poet
    Much love


    Peace

    There are those who just look at a person and think they can judge. But our shell does not convey the lives we have lived. I really felt your words, and felt a release with this piece.
