add something, if you want...

I face the sun, face upturned,
and smiling, finally,
It’s been so long since I felt like this,
so long since I’ve felt this strong.
They will see me and remember
the words to this canary’s song.
It’s a part of me,
an extra limb,
a pretty piece
of a broken toy.

See, some people have God,
some people have another human being,
but its just me,my music,and
this dark poetry
left here alone.
the only thing that calms the storms
raging in this mind of mine.
the only thing that slows down time
just enough so i can come to terms
with everything that has happened to me
it’s just me,my music,
and my poetry
facing the world alone,
to the soft sound of this canary’s song.

The End
