Selfish Americans-DOGWOOD

Rotting from the innards out. Another decade and they’re vanishing. What is it to you? What is it to me? There’s nothing we can do so I’ll just leave it the same. Stolen from our sight and mind. Swept under the rug. No shame. Oblivious to the poverty and we’re the ones to blame. Consumers venerate the power to take away. It’s burning ever closer killing them everyday. The pleasure to disregard it. Those children feel the sting. Conversely we forget them with every passing day. They’ll never go away and here we stay. Oh Oho. Selfish Americans. Recognize their … Continue reading Selfish Americans-DOGWOOD

Point Counterpoint-DOGWOOD

Has time forgotten my face? Stilled, I’m not through. I feel I’ve myself to blame. I can’t escape your name. All of it, my own shame. I feel time moving on. Small words and big motives all so untrue.

Dream of another day when you’ll think different. Why did you go away. The sun won’t come out today. You’ve taken my world away. Why did you go away?

All on my own, It was just like the first time, This could be the worst time to be me, Spare me your thoughts, Your position’s decieving, I wish it would lead me to my own, I tried to be strong, I learned to carry on, But people are happy just being sad. Call me afraid, It isn’t so easy, It’s always been easy to be weak, Over my head, Like the water that chokes me, You’re my only hope, That’s what I have. You’re my only hope, That’s what I have. Hand you my heart, Give you my hand … Continue reading Singular-DOGWOOD

For What It’s Worth-DOGWOOD

Chorus: For what it’s worth, thank you. For what it’s worth I love You. For what I’m worth, take me. For what I’m worth, use me. I’ve read of all You’ve done for me, Now let me do for You. And I pray that I never lose sight Of all that You went through. And the stripes on His back, Can you see them? Can you imagine? And holes in His hands can you feel them? Nails pierced the skin. And the feet that he stood on so broken, His spirit still strong. And the love that He’s given to … Continue reading For What It’s Worth-DOGWOOD
