by Odie

I see London everyday
Filled with mystery, majesty and history
So why won't my spirit sore
Why can't I find happiness?
Why do I always long to be where I am not
I could travel the globe
And never find a place to call home
My is soul searching for the unknown entity to make it whole
I have been to Napoleon’s tomb
And not felt greatness
I have been to Buckingham Palace
And not felt majestic
I have visited with the poor in Africa
And not felt humbled
I have stood at the base of a great waterfall
And not felt washed clean

Those that think they know me
Would call me happy and cheerful
But they do not know the pain I hide
Deep down in-side
Like a thick chain around my neck
Pulling me down, sinking me
The locket holding my secret
In plain view for those that would look
My heart is dead
Call the ambulance
Send for the paramedic
No! Wait!
I hear it
Quiet and steady
It beats on
