Night Vision

As the sun begins its descent
The world becomes a maze
I love the night life
And it's not just a faze

As long as I can remember
The day began in the afternoon
Instead of laying out in the sun
I bask in the light of the moon

Some people don't understand
How it is I live my life
How I float in and out
Never meant to be a wife

I love being a mother
This can never be taken away
The love of my children's hearts
Rolls through my mind as lay

I sleep while most rush through
Their routine boring just to hear
Anything can happen in the night
Seaming surreal only as day comes near

My insomnia keeps me awake
Even when there are things to do
I keep myself in check almost always
And party to keep from feeling blue

My dirty little secrets
Keep themselves well hidden
The drugs that I've done
The men that I've ridden

I'm finally allowed to enjoy myself
To live life and make it fun
I want to have my stories to tell
When I'm old and all is said and done

I know what I want
So I try to get close
I'm trying hard to get ahead
For myself and kids I want the most

I've spent half my life
Living someone else's rules
Now it's time to be me
With my brain and my tools

So in the night as the fantasy lives
I can do whatever to be me
And when the day comes life starts anew
What happened at night only I can see

Instead of laying out in the sun ........... lying a common error (assuming i understand you correctly) Rolls through my mind as lay..........do you want I in front of lay. it would be a shame, almost, to lose a rhyme, but again i think 'lie, not lay. 2006? ! are you still alive? i'm liking this so far. riddin? physically or emotionally? either way, i like the rhyme, and you shall have stories to tell! i love the ending: I've spent half my life Living someone else's rules Now it's time to be me With my brain and my tools So in the night as the fantasy lives I can do whatever to be me And when the day comes life starts anew What happened at night only I can see.............................. any updates? to MyPoemList! bri :)
