One Day...

sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I'm breathing
then I pray
don't take me soon
cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
because
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
they'll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day
it's not about
win or lose
we all lose
when they feed on the souls of the innocent
blood drenched pavement
keep on moving though the waters stay raging
in this maze you can lose your way
it might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you no way
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
because
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
they'll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day
one day this all will change
treat people the same
stop with the violence
down with the hate
one day we'll all be free
and proud to be
under the same sun
singing songs of freedom like
one day
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
they'll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day

Come Spend the Day with Me....

so we can visit
the Atlantic
to sit and ponder life,
                                                                        

and then make our way
to a yummy brunch


at O.C. White's,
to sit in the courtyard while the
guitarist strums his tunes



We can then stroll the less crowded streets
of the oldest city
of our country



to window shop
the many galleries



and wonder what is behind
the mysterious doors



We can peek into
a variety of private gardens


and celebrate the nations



especially the land
of pastries



where we can play dominoes



as the Stevie Wonder cat
keeps his eyes on us



We can search for whimsy
and follow its advice



and find the best
bumper sticker of the day...
and follow its advice



or stop for a chat with
Michael



as we listen to the
carillon on King Street



And we can end our time
with a spectaclar sunset,
wishing that the day would never end
