I owe the world a smile

The world has been kind to me,
But that ain’t enough to be free
Sloppy feelings poisoning my blood
This prison cell is soaked in mud!

It’s been a while, it’s been a while;
I owe the world a smile.

Been wearing a frown all day..
Have i chased all love away?
Shoving lies right down my throat
Nothing here to rock my boat

It’s been a while, it’s been a while;
I owe the world a smile.

I see pictures of laughing people;
Wanting to catch their happy ripple
Yet here comes another stronger wave,
One that takes me to a same old cave

It’s been a while, it’s been a while;
I owe the world a smile.

Loneliness has its own accomodation,
And I’m stuck in seductive isolation.
I have got to heed the call outside
For this beating heart’s not made to hide

It’s been a while, it’s been a while;
I owe the world a smile.

Unfinished

I thought I was a predator,
before I saw how small I am.
I am only a prey, afraid
of my own haunting shadows.

I thought I was a conqueror,
until I saw my many failures;
I am a casualty of defeat…
flag’s a tattered piece of sheet.

But the hunting has just begun,
and the battle has not been won;
I can still stand up again.
I am alive, I am not done.
