Dark Clouds

Take away these clouds
All day long they hang.
Give me a clear sky
One that offers hope
That all will once again be fine.

Let me feel the warmth
Of memories relived
The way I remember them.
Let me visit a while
An imaginary world long gone.

Take from my life the naysayers
The well to do begrudgers
The ones who hold me back
Those who count their way through life
Let me be

Where is that person
The one I always spoke of
The one I said I would become
So many years ago
Before I met the world.

Let the race be long
I have much to do
I have only now awakened
And seen the world for real.
It is not what I thought it would be.
