I dug a little deeper
Past the days you left behind
Tinkering with uncertainties
Of the pale and fluid sky
You saved a breath for me
I smiled a forward sigh
My heart knew of what I did need
But forgot to tell my mind
I will wait a little longer
Next to the showers and the cries
From a group of forgotten daisies
As we drown in your makeshift lies
I have known what you've always knew
What you tempted to leave behind
You would rather the past lead this dance
Than walk with me forward in time

A New Starting Line

When was the first time
I realized I could not fly?
When you told me so.

When was the first time
I was afraid to breathe?
When I realized
It could be done

When was the first time 
I realized mistakes became scars?
When you dug into my wounds
And made them deeper!

When was the first time
I felt that crying was a weakness?
Every time you yelled
To break me down
even smaller!

When was the first time
I saw the world as ugly?
When you pointed it out
And fed me your opinions!

Now I have realized that life
Is filled with firsts
You are no longer there
To make them my
Unless I choose them
to be.

Does the soul know of age
Does it beg to rest its head
Does it ache for flight 
From the stillness of my bed
Can it breathe in such confinement
Under the pressure of my will
Does it have the patience of thought
To know it can not rise until
It has taught me all it knows
Forced me to see all that is
Awakened me from the stillness of life
Showed me this is not mine nor either is it his
It has been brought to heart
As it ran through my mind
This life is not mine nor yours
It belongs to mother time

All that she has asked
Is for us to teach a few
And that living a selfless life
Will keep you from consuming you
