Cloudy Eyes

I have it all 

locked up inside 

my soul tries to hide 

and I can’t find the reasons why 


once I was whole 

pure spirit, body and soul 

the umbilical cord cut 

and ready to go 

into an unbiblical world 

I didn’t know 


the years passed and I passed out 

locked in a cage of everyday life 

I forgot there once was 

a fire burning inside 

suffocating slowly 


once I was whole 

pure spirit, body and soul 

the most powerful and gentle of all 

but routine made my body leak 

and the power wasn’t mine to keep 

so, I got left behind 

feeling all normal and weak 


things are how they are 

no need to seek the guilty 

innocent I am 

with no one else to blame 

with eyes to cloudy to see 

my own misery 


only at the bottom of the sea 

is where I found the possibility 

to be free, and see 

that there’s only one way to go 

to breath 


now with every step I take 

I nourish my fire inside 

mend the leak 

and wipe my cloudy eyes 

my cloudy eyes 


we are born whole 

free spirits in flow 

you wanna check vital signs? 

don’t measure the pulse 

look straight in the eyes 

can you find life inside? 

these cloudy eyes
