My Deep Song of Strength



I'm sorry I can't be as deep as you,
my eyes don't see things the way you do

I don't have the sadness in my life,
that you carry around

Yes I'm lonely too, but maybe
not as much you

For being wronged has me made strong
So I carry on, I will speak my Song,

I will never change the way I'am,
my song speaks volumes of who I am

I'm mentally strong more than most,
I dare you to coast the roads I've tread

Some of you, would surely have fled
My mind has been battered and beaten,
but not out

Sharp as I tack it remains,
in a battle of wits with me,
you had better bring brains

This Song it speaks of sweetness,
beyond mushy, love never pushy,
and some one who truly hopes to gain,
a inner understanding of you,
and why you came

Came to be my friend
A friend to the end maybe I dunno

My Song tells you I been through it too,
the heartache and the pain

Shame I thought would never end,
until life brought me some true blue friends

This Song also tells you,
I see humor in all things death and life

Strife is part of life,
things were not meant to be easy

This Song also tells you I'm cheesy,
I'm a goof and a prank,
I'm a total smart ass think tank.

I love everyone and try to offend none

The things I say and talk about,
I have been through myself,
so the next time you judge me,
look at yourself

This is not perfect, but it is my Song,
and will be my Song forever long
