Sometime You'Ll Cry - Poem by Dava Makiah

You know I know you like to
get off on everyone else's pain
that's why when you ask,
'how you doing'
I just smile and say,
I've never seen better days.
So what's it to you
Turn on the news it's made
for people like you
Look around town
everybody seems to be down
what's worth saving when your
already so far swallowed
All my life
i reach for you
All my life
i have cried for you
the crescendos of emotions
have drowned out
the flat land
leaving me like a vagabond
and i have vastly
traveled all landscapes
of thought and feeling
I know the way to your capitol
where no body ever has to
reserve a seat.
when you going to just get
up and leave?
Someday you'll cry
from being happy
and it will break your
titanic hold
Someday you'll cry
from being happy
and i'll be there
shedding feeling
Someday you'll cry
from being happy
until that day i'm here
just floating in the light
not so far away
