Author: Meridian Zuriel


Sit in the chair and stare
Out the window
Watch the wind blow
The trees from side to side

Whether youíre inside looking out
Or outside looking in
Sometimes it is impossible
For you to pretend

Like youíre fine
When youíre merely occupying space
Breathing but not living
Anybody can read your face

Itís all in your eyes
Your mind is somewhere else
You donít care anymore
Like you did before

Here we are
Once again
The same way we left
Was the same way we came back in
Expression hadnít changed much
Fate hit us hard
All weíve got is our dreams
Pride, morals and self-esteem

But what is a dream
Without a little paint and a paintbrush
We can still carry on with our painting
Regardless if the dream was crushed

We can still pick up the easel
And start coloring away
Of what wouldíve been
Had the story ended another way

We dream til we die
No more tears left to cry
A Charlie Bucket with no golden ticket
A fairy without wings to fly

Thus we create our own gold
We create our own wings
It really isnít an option
To create a world without sting
