It seems so easy to say that you are happy To smile and be filled with glee But me, I wonder how we can make it last forever. That is a mystery. My mind it thinks the keys to life 
It's clear life's circumstances get hairy, Once in a while we're not quite so merry. But when that seems to happen, I get my toes tappin',
Life is full of ups and downs, Life is full of upside down frowns. Life is not the breath you take, Life can always take a shake. Troubles will come and go, Troubles will be your foe.

Rain, Rain from her face- How will she ever win this race? Put her down and stab her back she will always stay. At night she stays awake to keep the evil at bay. Coward, stupid, and evil-

If you swim across the seven seas    If you walk through a dozen deserts    Until you receive blisters    Could you answer the unknown all alone  
Eyelids that flutter like butterfly wings, Brow bones shimmering with the song that they sing. Darker eyelashes than the loneliest night, The chocoloate-brown irises standing out against white.  
The purest joy Is found amidst The colorful rays Of the stained glass panes Of my church. Singing and dancing Shouting praises to my King Worshiping His holy name.

I delight in an autumn breeze,
A message to the community. Help me, please. My brain has been replaced, Stolen, I believe. With butterflies and clouds, so thick I can hardly think. My eyes are as wide as the ocean,
Hearts shattered, spirits crumbled, and faith tested
