Selfish Happiness


I love you,
I say I am sorry with every bone in me,
We have seen the darks,
We have been in fear,
We have felt the sad,
We have closed up to never open,

I am sorry for how ugly I have become,
Sorry for letting my fears take best of me,
Sorry I am not the man who thought I am,
Sorry for letting my past take control,

To us I want a future,
To us I want a family,
To us I want memories,
To us I want happiness,

We deserve all the happiness,
We deserve to be selfish,
We deserve the future we dream of,
We deserve the family we plan of,

To us recreating happy memories,
To us not letting our fears take us on,
To us been selfish for our happiness,
To us believing we deserve it all,

This is an apology,
This is a confession,
This is a dream for us,
This is to say I love us.

My Orphan Child


My orphan child,
I write to you,
Keep that head high,
Keep that faith intact,
Keep your hopes grand,
Work hard my child,
Achieve your dreams,
Don't let the world beat you down,

Remember you are a loner,
A forgotten to most,
Remember you are a sinner,
The guilty in everyone's eyes,
Remember where you stand in another's life,
Remember you are the option never the priority,
Remember happiness is just a drug hit,
Remember to escape life to work,

Remember always you were an orphan,
The unwanted,
The abandoned,
The cursed,

To you I write my child,
Don't fight those tears,
Always fight for your life,
Fight for that family you crave for,
Work hard everyday of your life.
