Something I Feel
if you scratch just a little below the surface you will find
a light a little dimmer than the one you left behind.
a love a little wary, scared and still unsure,
but a heart beating strong with arms open like before.
it may not be a perfect package, perfect hair or perfect nails,
but it will always have that perfect smile whenever all else fails.
i can be shy, i can be stubborn, with my head all full of dreams,
but i am honest and i am loyal and what you get is what you see.
i live to play and laugh and love,
for the latter i must wait.
for somethings are out of our hands
somethings are left to fate.
so i must learn to love to live
whilst i'm still standing here.
for we all have our time to shine
and i pray that mine is near.
