Golden Wings

All I want is to fly,
fly with golden wings that take me beyond
beyond where my brown ones can go
Fly to a destination so high that I’m friends with the stars and the sky.

When I’m there, will I smile?
When I’m there, will I fall in love with the sky?
Tell me, giver of golden wings, what’s the price?

There are no free lunches, they say
So do my wings cost me my humanity?
my sanity? or will they lead me to vanity…
Tell me, giver of golden wings, how will I have to pay?

All I want is to fly,
to be mindless and be friends with the stars and the sky.
Too bad I’m still human, and worry about the price
Giver of golden wings, thank you for teaching me to try.

Happy Place

Hold my hand and follow me,
Through the forest and through the dark
Because where we’re going is a secret,
I won’t let anyone see it
Except you…

It’s the place in my dreams
Where my happiness lies,
The place where the sun shines
And you’re part of it now,

Now that you’re in
Open your eyes,
Look at everything that I hold dear
And promise to never leave,
Because you’ve made your way in and now I can’t let go.

Bad Dreams are My Reality

This is a dream; it’s all just a bad dream and when I open my eyes it will disappear. But… what if it doesn’t?

Does this mean that my brother is really dead? Was I actually kidnapped and did I escape?

This can’t be true, no, it just can’t.

I broke down, right there, grieving over the experiences of the past week, reality finally washing over me as the adrenaline rush ended. I never asked to be the child of two gangsters but this was my fate and now it’s too late to run from it.

I took a deep breath in and wiped the tears that had caked my face, I’ve suffered enough. Now it’s time for Revenge.

Your nightmares are my reality and it’s my job to turn them into daydreams.
