Love and Adventure | Poetry Remix No. 2

“Love and Adventure.”

On the streets, searching this city with you,

Two dots on a mountain or ocean blue.

We’re searching the world, making memories.

We’re spending money but getting for free.

The world’s so big, we’re at each other’s side.

We’ve got each other’s back – Bonnie and Clyde!

The storm clouds turn grey.

Wind blows, night and day.

Like Empire State,

We’ll shine anyway.

Searching with you. ‘cross mountains, oceans blue.

New York can’t compare with my love for you.

Heart at Peace | Poetry Remix No. 1

“Heart at Peace.”

A long day coming, like a hurricane.

Came to work happy, but now not okay.

Whatever happened, we’ve been there before.

Hiding in his house, in his room, shut door.

And he plays on his guitar

things he feels inside his heart.

When the world does fall apart

and everyone feels so far.

Came to the world as simple as could be.

She wanted little things, not like you, me.

But the world never told it would be cruel.

Left her brokenhearted, feeling a fool.

So she plays on her guitar

things she feels inside her heart.

When the world does fall apart

and everyone feels so far.

Still, they play on their guitars

and they pray a little prayer.

And the peace inside their hearts

lets them know that someone’s there.
