Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

For The...

For the Day that once seemed so long
Now 24 Hours just isn't enough
For the heart that once was broken and lonely
It now stands tough.
For the girl that was once so scared
Now realizes that it was her own fears that caused her to hide.
For the voice that once wouldn't allow me to speak
Now needs a muzzle for the power that it leaks.
For the love I never had
But will some day gain
Is forcing me to live life for me
And learn to maintain.
For the life I lived
In such a confused state of mind
Now gives me courage
To move foward and leave your memory behind.
