Subject:  I finally wrote again
Message:  Listening to Mickey and Jonmark, put me in my semi bipolar self again and I came up with this.

You don’t know me? You see me everyday.
I’m the one with old dreams, that quietly went away.
You passed me in the halls of life, and never said a word.
I wrote the songs, of love and life, that no one ever heard.

I’m the one that once loved life, a smile stayed on my face.
A mirror now, shows me the truth, an old man took my place.
I used to be a wise man, filled with all the answers.
Now I share the stage of life and dance with all the dancers.

You don’t know me? I gave my love to you.
I had dreams for you and me, that never did come true.
I’m the hero, that led the charge, and helped us win the game!
But only in my heart and mind, they never called my name.

I’m the one that looked at life and always wondered “ Why”?
I searched and searched for happiness and found it’s just a lie.
I tried so hard to overcome the heavy hand of fate.
I emptied all my heart of love and filled it up with hate.

A dark room now, I fight demons, with paper and a pen.
The dragon always wins the fight, but I return again.
I guess, until my dying day, dreams… I’ll never see.
Words are all I have, right now, that no one hears but me.

You don’t know me? You see me every day.
I’m the one with no dreams, that quietly passed away.
A park bench and some old bread, I feed it to the birds.
Even they demand I pay the cost. to heed my lonely words.
