Release

Out here alone, just me and the stars I can hear silence, I hear the dark Under the heavens, under that space Find me an answer, find me a place
To sleep, to dream
Out here with you, you're next me I hold your hand, you grin happily Under the quiet, beneath the trees Together not silent, together we're free
To sleep, to dream
Running around in circles Because we want to Climbing the tallest trees To take in the view Laying back on the grass To watch the clouds Closing our eyes, tuning out All of the sounds
Let's sleep and dream
Out here in jeans, converse and t-shirt The wind gets chilly, pull on my jacket Hike the next mountain, top the next ridge See the next valley, roll down the hills
I breathe, release
Out here in winter, snow on my hair I am alone but, really don't care Here is adventure, here is my life All of creation, not enough time
To breathe, release
Running around in circles Because I want to Climbing the tallest trees To take in the view Laying back on the grass To watch the clouds Closing…

The Princess

"What's the matter with you, princess?" My pale professor said. "Have you been poisoned, stabbed or tortured, Have you lost your head?
"Then use it, girl, before you're dead. Get that mind to thinking. You need to use the time you have, Every day you're sinking!
"Don't look at me like I'm insane, I'm alive because I'm clever. You must learn to live this way, The queen won't live forever!
"Now don't speak, the walls have ears, I'll see you with the sun. Think on what you've heard, but know I expect your homework done."
When he'd gone, I sat a bit And then got into bed. I reflected on the day's events On what he hadn't said.
He was right about everything.
One more mistake and I'd be dead.
