Even in the Rain

raised arms

What words would express my heart?

At the moment it rains horizontally

I am ok with that…I am ok

I smile to myself and remember

To keep my sense of humor

Tucked up under my arm

For when I need it

A friend reminds me

To raise my arms up

Every once in a while

So it doesn’t get choked

To death…

Today, I am raising my arms

My heart is laughing

Even in the rain

“I think I’ve discovered the secret of life — you just hang around until you get used to it.”

-Charlie Brown-

Slow Down

Performer: Imany from her album ‘Shape of a Broken Heart’

Lyrics:
Slow down
Take your time
It’ll all be alright
If you decide to take it on the science
Take it easy
Take it easy
Oh slow down

Take your time
It’ll all be alright
If you decide to take it on the science
Take it easy
Take it easy

Oh slow down

And I understand
Why facing a friend
It’s so hard, sometimes
But guess what
You’re not the only one
The door is shot
But so is your mind

And I understand
Why facing a friend
It’s so hard, sometimes
But guess what
You’re not the only one
The door is shot
But so is your mind

Slow down
Take your time
It’ll all be alright
If you decide to take it on the science
Take it easy
Take it easy

Oh slow down
Take your time
It’ll all be alright
If you decide to take it on the science
Take it easy
Take it easy

Oh slow down

But let me explain you
Don’t have to complain
Look at the bright side
Open your eyes
Along with your mind
It’s not so bad
God is love and love is all around

You do the best you can
Doesn’t have to be grand
Open your arms
Now is the time
To get on with your life
Hold on
Mend your heart and enjoy the ride

Slow down
Take your time
It’ll all be alright
If you decide to take it on the science
Take it easy
Take it easy

Oh slow down
Take your time
It’ll all be alright
If you decide to take it on the science
Take it easy
Take it easy

Oh slow down
