Moving On

I am moving on
reaching toward my hopes and dreams
It has taken me far too long
to reach this place, it seems

My fears may try to hold me back
To try and block my way
But with courage and faith in my heart
I will get there come what may

The road will be a long one,
And it may be rocky, too
But when I reach this place in time,
My dreams could all shine through

I am coming nearer to my goals
And my excitement grows
The plans I have made will soon be real
Along with the destiny I chose

Though I have been tossed and turned in life’s storms
I will surely see a brighter dawn
I’m no longer held back by my fears
I’m finally….Moving On

Tears and Rain

I guess it’s time I run
Far, far away find comfort in pain
All pleasure’s the same
It just keeps me from trouble
Hides my true shape like Dorian Gray
I’ve heard what they say
But I’m not here for trouble
It’s more than just words
It’s just tears and rain
