65 Roses

Citizen Aim
65 Roses..

Verse 1:

What is life expectancy, what a way to phrase a question/
What kind of answer should return the truth, convey the message//
Is it, equality the same end for every person/
Is it sovereignty a giving God and living with purpose//
Is it only shall the strong survive and then will end the weak/
Or a dog eat dog world, take advantage, turn the cheek//
How bout living out your dreams and express it through a poem/
Know what you expect out of life and you can gain the gold//
Well for a family of an infant diagnosed to comatose/
It..s journey down the pathway to fight and know the ropes//
Each living soul is different like a fingerprint..s identity/
Each body..s made a little different, singing it..s own melody//
Embedded in the DNA, where the twisted strands dance/
I wish I guide the way and hold each little one..s hand//
I..ve been there before, and I know the way now/
Like a tourist with a map and pamphlet, got it laid out//

Chorus:

Life loves me, life loves me not it goes/
See the beauty in a flower when I..m pulling on the rose//
Prick a fingertip, bleed a bit, from trying to hold it tight/
I want a year for every petal, still alive at sixty-five//

Verse 2:

Can life be re-paid, can life be reimbursed/
Get the tears back you cried for every time you felt the hurt//
What about medical bills, hospital trips, doctor visits/
Time and time again hearing results that weren..t worth a listen//
But you have to, hear the news for what it is/
Could do damage to your ears, or it might mend a heart thats delicate//
A life-long relationship with medical technology/
Feel like the drugs and machines should owe me an apology//
Where to aim to blame, if only that I knew/
For the one who has the power, has more love for me than I do//
Not in measurements of self-esteem or the image in the mirror/
Not in a sense of being vein but in a sense of being clearer//
Unconditional, not limited by any means/
Break the strands and molds that try to pigeon-hole me please//
Unconventional, I..ll be damned if I don..t defy/
Disease, I want seeds in a family that can multiply//

Chorus:

Life loves me, life loves me not it goes/
See the beauty in a flower when I..m pulling on the rose//
Prick a fingertip, bleed a bit, from trying to hold it tight/
I want a year for every petal, still alive at sixty-five//
Verse 3:
Will God give me the chance to say goodbye one last time/
Gather friends and family members, single file in a line//
Apologize for neglecting, for always second guessing/
I should have nurtured more relationships are such a blessing//
Hear a word from a friend that makes you smile when it hurts/
Get better treatment from your wife than any certified nurse//
And a rock to stand on, not just in Christ but in family/
Break their backs just to help you hold steady handling//
(1,2...) I..m an angel in waiting/
Growing wings out of my spine to take flight navigating//
When it comes time, give em pounds & daps I..m outta here/
Take the one and only flight up, blast into the atmosphere//
Look next to me, I..m not flying all alone/
I..ll take the long road home where the psalms unfold//
And be the oldest man living till the day I pass away/
Telling cystic fibrosis that it lost again today//

Chorus:

Life loves me, life loves me not it goes/
See the beauty in a flower when I..m pulling on the rose//
Prick a fingertip, bleed a bit, from trying to hold it tight/
I want a year for every petal, still alive at sixty-five//
