Come Out to Play

Come Out to Play
By: JL

It is time to walk AWAY
since you dont wanna STAY,
I rather be STRAY
and learn on my own DAY
to be better TODAY
as I continue to LAY
eyes on that ocean BAY
and shut the flip up with what I have to SAY
since you dont give a flip about being GAY
or saying HEY to me or JAY.
So what do you want to PAY
because my time is worth more than this dark SUNRAY OKAY?
Now, let me go find food for my TRAY
Because I am sick of your WAY
and going to my Jessalin world of zig-zag ZAY
to wish for better and go PRAY my life to one DAY be oh YAY!...


So WHO is ready to come out with me to PLAY
on this lovely day that is quite GRAY.
Can you color me in like "The FRAY"
who sing "Over My Head" just like the month of MAY
where flowers blossoms with sunlight full of RAY

Stay Sweet,
