inspired by "somewhere" from west side story... a bit more bitter however.


somewhere

"somewhere"

safe haven behind these fragile
teen-age hearts. we beat on
and hope for a somewhere
anywhere
that's free of all this hate
it kills the children
poisoned, we move onward
to the stars, the heavens,
to somewhere beyone this hell
broken mirrors now our path
no good fortune here, or good will
we must excape to our somewhere
if there is such a place...

Beautiful.. it's so down right and true.. but yet so sad.


running from your problems, to somewhere, nowhere. it feels like your fantasizing, but it could be about suicide. I hope you're just fantasizing about a better place.

what an excellent expression of the concerns of today's world. What will the children do. You will create your path and lead us toward a better tomorrow. You will take the broken mirrors, melt them down and make a new reflection of hope and peace. You will for you are our hope! xx kathy
