    Hi Heaven
    Or should I say Hi to the place
    That won’t give my mind a taste
    Of being heard
    Or loved

    And don’t tell me that I’m loved
    Simply because I’m not up above
    Because walking these streets
    Is pure hatred at its best

    And no I won’t give it a rest….

    Because I’ve taken too many tests
    And I’m tired of passing
    With no progress…

    I’m tired of moving forward
    Just to be told I’ve been running backwards all along

    I’m tired of writing all these lines
    Just to be told that no one
    Likes the song….

    I’m tired of getting on my knees
    Sending words up to the sky
    Only to open up my eyes
    And find that the sun has no replies…

    I’m trying my hardest to trust in you
    But lately that’s hard to do
    When I’m thrust into a fight for my life
    And a win only meets a few

    And the smiles and the frowns
    Have swiftly come together
    So I’m standing on this mountain
    Having the hardest time
    Separating the sunlight
    From the bad weather

    So what is a man like me to do?
    When all my ups are being trampled by downs….
    I always thought I’d be able to look to you
    But it seems you’re never around…

    Or maybe you are
    And my loud pleas have been falling
    On deaf ears

    Or maybe you have that selective hearing sh**
    That’s been common throughout the years

    But whatever your excuse may be
    Just know that I’m in need.

    Of a father who doesn’t leave..
    Or a mother who really cares….
    Or some friends who know the meaning
    And a heart that doesn’t want to stop beating….

    Or even a ceiling that won’t keep shrinking
    Or a sidewalk that won’t keep speaking
    It’s words in blood…..

    See, I don’t know where else to go
    All I know is I need help..

    I’ve tried talking to myself
    But myself is just myself
    He keeps placing my fears on the shelf

    Saying one day we’ll face them
    But it won’t be today
    And definitely not tomorrow
    I’m running out of time
    With no more minutes left to borrow

    And all I ask of you
    Is one moment
    To let all my imperfections go
    Even though I’m sure you already know
    Of them

    So Hi Heaven
    This is Patrick yet again
    Sending up some thoughts tonight
    Hoping you’ll let them in

    {F.S.}
