    THE LAUGHTER I HEAR IS FILLING THE ROOM
    WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW, IS A ROOM FILLED WITH GLOOM
    YET IN THE MIDST OF MY PAIN AND DESPAIR
    JOY CAN STILL BE FELT, FOR I'M SURROUNDED
    BY OTHERS THAT DO CARE.

    I'M HAVING SOME CONFUSION ....
    WHAT PEACE? PEACE FOR ME IS AN ILLUSION
    AN OASIS OF WHAT MY HOME USED TO BE
    A VISION OF FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES I LONG TO SEE

    CAN SOMEONE WAKE ME, FROM THIS DREAMY STATE I'M IN
    MY LIFE HAS DRIFTED ... THERE IS NO MORE ME WITHIN'
    AS I CONTINUE MY SEARCH FOR THE ME I ONCE KNEW
    I MUST REMEMBER THAT I CAN NEVER FIND ME THROUGH YOU.

    WE SEARCH FOR ANSWERS IN THE EYES OF FRIENDS
    BUT WE NEVER ASK QUESTIONS CONCERNING WHERE THEY'VE BEEN
    WELL I'M BACK TO MY OWNSELF, YOUR ISSUE WERE OUT OF HAND
    I'LL NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF WHO I AM ... FORGETTING MYSELF
    ... FOR THE LOVE OF A MAN.

    nice peace. As a strong black man not only would i not ask my woman to lose herself for me is would be very discourged if she started to. I see your glow. And it is all yours.

    Agreeing with 007 here, no, a strong man would never ask a woman to lose herself for him. Although I do wonder if some do this without being asked to, and without meaning to....Makes ya think, made me think anyway. Great piece.
