Breathing New Beginnings 

Away from the pollution that rots us inside. Here with the beauty surrounding the sky.  In comes the thoughts destroying my pride, who is this and where am I?

Change is in the making, it’s only you that you’re faking. Take it in, let it out, feeling better as a shout. Bring it on, where’s the fight? I’m winning, I can see the light.

Away from the pollution that rots us inside. Here with the beauty surrounding the sky. In comes the thoughts and feelings of pride, knowing myself right here where I lye.

Young Thai Girl

A foreign place, A different year, a different God that I fear.

Keeping face, keeping pride, born into feelings I’m supposed to hide.  

Loving people that I hate, making money, keeping good faith. I must tolerate.

Hard-working and empty inside, selling my body to the next guy that walks by.

Killing me slowly, killing me inside, no where to run and nowhere to hide.

This is what I’m born into. This is where I will die. Unless I marry a stranger, a sailor, or a foreign guy.
