“Time from Paradise” by Leonard M Parks


There you are so innocent
Why do you trouble so
With all my problems deep inside
Where no one dares to go

So much time do I consume
And guilty do I feel
From thoughts that one day I just might
Feel something not surreal

I cannot pay you for your mind
How could it have a price
I cannot pay you for the time
You take from paradise

There must be something I can do
For saying what's unsaid
And helping me find sanity
From what's inside my head.
