More Than I Appear To Be

Posted to Poetry




An attempt at a song lyric...

I put myself in these shoes
with a feeling of something more
to be more than I am inside
I raised my right hand and swore

Sometimes the fit is less than right
I struggle along my way
I push and pull this imaginary wall
that wants to crash my day

I am more than I appear to be
not so simple as I seem
If you were to ask my name
you'd see that I have dreams

Sometimes the fit is less than right
I struggle along my way
I push and pull this imaginary wall
that wants to crash my day

I have a love inside
for things which make me whole
I am just a puzzle piece
in this world that they stole

I wear my colors proud
a simple thing I'm sure
but if you were to stand
would you sway or endure
