Book of Love
Quality Time and Physical Touch
I am Faith
Daughter of Ray and Ragan
Who needs affection, acceptance, and attention
Who loves quiet nights, back rubs, and subtle touches
Who sees pain, loneliness, and need
Who hates anger, hurt, and heartbreak
Who fears rejection, brokenness, and pain
Who dreams of blue skies, better days, and smiles all around
Who has found poems of love, loss, and motivation
Resident of the place we call a home.
I am peaceful.
Not like the sunset after a dark day,
Not like a still ocean after a violent storm,
Not like calm breaths,
But peaceful like when you lay your head down at night with a clear mind,
Peaceful like when you sit and watch the bugs, and are happy that they get to explore the world in beautiful ways.

SOAPSTONE: This was intended for younger people, mainly. This song, I believe, was made to help people find themselves through soul-searching, they're meant to believe in love and hate and always find the truth. To show us that we will lose love and that we will cry tears in agony. The theme is trials, that life will have trials no matter what. The conflict through out this song is more man vs man because it's talking about what other people put you through. Also the song is man vs self because it's soul searching.
"A piece of me"
"listen but you don't care"
"Love that I've lost"
"Tears that I've cried"
