Ill cover me in poppies and send me out to sea. Ive waited so long to see this beauty. The sun shines high and does not burn me. Id like to see some of the bright side.. where the grass is green and smells like me. The trees make sounds as i pass singing....... a tune i want to reherse in me. Come with me on this ride.. and forget the things that drag you down. I covered myself in poppies and sent me out to sea. just as the sun rises its head the little bugs fly....... along the bright green hedge. ...Words dont decive me and make my heart melt. Touching the leaves as i pass so dlicately built ....not a better day this could be, in this new me. I could  cut off my hair or dye it blue, all that matters is it doesnt matter to you. My mind will fly like the birds in the skye... and ill see the light shine in your eyes. I can have fun this day and spread my wings, forgetting the days the clipped feathers tinged. I want to laugh and not force a thing.... A thin happiness speading over my skin. For a while i felt stuck, in a carefully made box. But i realised the mess you made, the mess you made of me.... and im angry at you for tell me i was bad. So im killing you off and i wont worry a thing. I dont care about dolphines or the fish swimming in. Im with my loved one now, the one that hears, the drums i bang as i see them come in. We'll catch the flower petals in the wind and make a wish as the stars fall in. Whatever mattered, mattered before, now all i want is to hear myself call. Into the wind i hear it talk back, its telling me im beutiful and to let the child in. Ill spin in the grass and fall to my knees, praying to nature for all its givings.
