I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin’ a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days
And like His promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin’ hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope
With such an endurin’ pain
That it keeps ‘em in the pourin’ rain
Who’s to blame
For tootin’ ‘caine into your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin’ prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin’ true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

I just adore spring. There is something about spring that has a positive vibe. Maybe it’s the beautiful weather you get after a very long cold and snowy winter or the fact that Spring creates life. Life of flowers, trees, grass to the new batch of chicks, bunnies and birds. I love it.
I love having the chance to be outside and plant flowers. I never thought I would enjoy it coming from the city, but it’s relaxing, and therapeutic.
I get excited over a nursery sale, and love getting my hands dirty in the new soil. Don’t get me wrong-I scrub those hands after playing in the dirt. I’m still not a fan of being dirty-yet I’m not afraid of getting dirty anymore either.
Spring weather is so beautiful and cool and the sun shines is so bright. The only thing I hate the most about springtime weather is it brings the tornadoes. But spite those tornadoes I still enjoy the spring. I love laying in my hammock, relaxing with the cool breeze, Facebooking, tweeting or reading. It’s peaceful, quiet and relaxing.
That’s one thing I love about Missouri. Springtime!
