How can I try to express

Poetry By: air

I'm gonna try to add a song. the line; 'Look at me I'm still young, but am I happy' comes from listening to Cat Stevens, I think his line is: 'Look at me, I am old but I'm happy' I think? well should not be too hard to understand but am open to suggestions eh? ^_^
thanks guys, love, love and more love always ~katie

How can I try to express,

all the feelings down inside me-

I'm still young

but am I happy.....


How can I complain

when all in all, the truth is;

I'm not ready for the virtues

I'm still sruggling.


There are church bells on the byways

ringing out across the highways.

They ring small truths

but what they bring is not united.


Are we hypocrites at heart?

And is hypocrisy an art?

Who am I to judge

what's been delivered?


And I don't give too much thought

about all the day has got.

Sometimes the truth is not for me

at times I fight it.


Oh I've been born so many times

and I'm feeling kinda bad

cause I still want more to come

Oh am I happy.....


I'm not ready for the clouds

my roots are still attached here

I'll admit that I am strong

but I am lonely.


Oh how can I express

all the feelings welled inside me

I am young

look at me

but am I happy....


I spill my tears;

I cry aloud;

And YES I am still proud;

I am human

I admit

and its not easy.


I think of all the love I've got

I think of all the friends I met here

then I'm full, and do you know

how much you've touched me...


Yes I'm young

I'm still here

and I am Happy
