Thunder & Lightning - going on in my head...
As I'm thinking - in my own little world...
Sunshine & blue skies - sometimes there's rain -
Sunshine & Laughter - teardrops & pain...

There's thunder & lightning, going on in my head...
As my world goes slowly around -
Sometimes I wonder - wish I were younger...
And sometimes I just wish I were dead.

There's thunder & lightning, going on in my head...
As my anger burns in despair -
Hell-fire & brimstone - Burning down in my heart...
Throwing stones - cause nobody cares...

Thunder & Lightning - and cool waters they flow -
Passing peacefully through my mind...
Rivers - Grand Canyons...Continental Divides -
As the wars wage on through my time...

Thunder & Lightning - cool waters and Rain
As my world goes slowly around...
Sometimes I wonder - sometimes there's laughter
Sometimes there's sunshine - sometimes there's pain.

But through it all - my footprints must go -
My heart keeps a beating - - - it seems...
The earth keeps a turning -
Emotions keep a churning.

So the war is within us...
So we have to defend us -
From our ownselves...
It would seem.....

A man's heart often cannot see the light - because of the darkness of it's own motives.... - James David

We are our own worst enemy...and sometimes that in itself is undefensible. Wondeful piece here...nice imagery and alusion.

Dad, it's funny...when I posted this the other night for you, I didn't realize just how much it would ring true today....I sit here crying again, because as usual, I hurt the ones I love most when I let my emotions get in the way....which is why I must go get my head clear, like NOW! hehe

This is me exactly today, dad....thank you for showing me I'm not the only one who has battles within...I have been having WWIII now for quite some time, I am so tired of myself....and am so tired of hurting others and myself.....please pray for me dad....I certainly need it right now....I love you. Hope I can see you again soon !!

I think this was superb....I'll bet most of us have felt all these things in our lives and our heads. You're obviously a very knowledgable person. (So? I guess that means "Femme's" adopted?)

Great poem... I've certainly had my share of those churning emotions (and sometimes MORE than my share! *G*)

ROFL @ Toerag and Femme... Hurry back, PFF!
