Poem -

I sing into the night...

I sing into the night...

Come, sit with me for a while, I could sing to you, a piece of my mind,
The moon is my only time, I'm a lonely homeless child, I could cry,
Instead, I sing into the night
I sing into the night...

Nobody wanted me in their life, mam and dad took drugs and drank,
Some days I feel alright, but this damn cough has my throat so tight,
To see my own breath squeezed out, I pray to god, who the hell do I thank, 
The winter comes, and newspapers are thin, I hope I don't get frostbite,

Foster home to foster home, life is reality not a Hollywood movie,
I ran away countless of times, different people pretending to be parents,
I've stole, I've done it all, to stop being cold, are you going to sue me?
I say what I feel, I hear my heart beat and on my sleeve is where I keep it,

Come, sit with me for a while, I could sing to you, a piece of my mind,
The moon is my only time, I'm a lonely homeless child, I could cry,
Instead, I sing into the night
I sing into the night...

I was looking for food in back lane bins, I found a guitar with two missing strings,
This is my gift, it connected me to my friend, the moon, 
I'm on the streets for now, me and my voice, singing what the future might bring, 
Maybe love?
Maybe money?
Maybe food?
Who knows, but maybe one day soon,
So...

Come, sit with me for a while, I could sing to you, a piece of my mind,
The moon is my only time, I'm a lonely homeless child, I could cry,
Instead, I sing into the night,
I sing into the night,
Come, sit with me for a while, I could sing to you, a piece of my mind,
The moon is my only time, I'm a lonely homeless child, I could cry,
Instead, I sing into the night,
I sing into the night...
