Home Love Express Myself!

Express Myself!

by Praveen Kumar

Many times we hit a block when it comes to expressing ourselves to others and to us. This is one such time where I wanted to but I could not.

sitting here - Express Myself!

Sitting Here, Express Myself !

 

sitting here, my mind wanders far away
from the memories, that once haunted me!

sitting here, i wish i could be far away
holding your hand and walking in the beach!

sitting here, i dream of the future
when darkness and light would co-exist!

sitting here, my eyes look very tired
but across the table, i hope you can see the fire inside!

sitting here, clasped in chains of emotions
i long to break free and say what i want to!

sitting here, watching this methodical world
i fight against the odds to keep me alive

sitting here, while everyone is chasing wealth
i wonder if it’s worth the pain and struggle

sitting here, wanting to live life
i struggle to express myself to you!

when you want to express, there’s nothing but yourself stopping it… dont struggle, just go with the flow… that’s the best way to approach it! 🙂

BL,

its just like the first stage speech scenario.

you would want to say a thousand things but once you have the mike in the hand, you lose it all and end up blabbering something 😉
you could say this is something like that.

there are a lot of things to say, but when the effort is made to say them all, the words just dry up or end up saying something else irrelevant 🙂
