GEORGE CANYON – MY NAME

It’s cold in here feels like everything’s upside down
I can feel you talking but I can barely make out the sound
I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
I’m gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
She wants to dress me in pink, paint’s my bedroom blue
And I just laugh to myself, because only I know the truth
This love is my only emotion
Haven’t learned any fear, any pain
It’s kind of funny with all this commotion
I guess they’ve got me to blame
And they don’t even know my name
And they don’t even know my name

Well I’ve never felt so ready, think it’s finally time
Cause that big old world is waiting, and it’s mine all mine
Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
And a man took my hand said don’t worry, your mommas gonna be alright
Then he opened the gate & I followed him in,
Said you can wait right here, till it’s your turn again
And his love is the one true emotion
Heaven knows no fear, no pain
I never got to set my wheels in motion
But they loved me just the same
And they didn’t even know my name
Didn’t even know my name
You loved me just the same
And you didn’t even know my name

BROKEN WOMB

pregnant-1207238_960_720

That hollow spot on your body
Speaks of an anguish
That cannot be consoled
A selfish need
To cry all the tears of the century
That space, deep dark space
Left by a life ended too soon
The life of a child
Lost in the abys of death
Life clawed away by unexplained reasons
That empty dent on your belly
Tells of grief beyond comprehension
A story truly harsh
Cannot be recounted without cries
Speaks of a desire to wither away
A tainted need
To curl into a foetal position
Never to wake up again
Your broken womb
Speaks of nothing but your hurt
Everything hurts
Even the heart hurts more
Looking down at an empty womb
Staring back at you
With no mercy
That part of you that died
Yet needing a Healer
To mend that broken womb

DESPITE THE ACHE

I will laugh again
I will sing again
I will hope again
I will dream again
I will smile again
I will expect again
Despite the ache
I will rise again
I have to laugh again
I have to sing again
I have to hope again
I have to dream again
I have to smile again
I have to expect again
Despite the ache
I will rise again
I may not laugh again now
I may not sing again now
I may not hope again now
I may not dream again now
I may not smile again now
I may not expect again now
Despite the ache
I will rise again
To laugh
To sing
To hope
To dream
To smile
To expect
Tomorrow
I will rise again
Despite the ache

GRIEF IN A JAR

message-in-a-bottle-on-the-beach

I will put my grief in a jar
Seal it tight
Throw in into the Ocean
So that it floats away
Into the land unknown
The land of healing
