     Blackbird singing in the dead of night
     Take these broken wings and learn to fly.
     All your life
     You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

     Blackbird singing in the dead of night
     Take these sunken eyes and learn to see.
     All your life
     You were only waiting for this moment to be free. 

     Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly 
     Into the light of the dark black night. 
     Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly 
     Into the light of the dark black night. 

     Blackbird singing in the dead of night 
     Take these broken wings and learn to fly. 
     All your life 
     You were only waiting for this moment to arise 
     You were only waiting for this moment to arise 
     You were only waiting for this moment to arise

When Trouble Comes

Though your world is crumbling
and darkness threatens to overwhelm,
Don't despair. Look up.
See? There's a small break in the clouds
A shaft of light beams down
Changing everything.
Yes, I know, the world around you is still dark.
But, now, you know
that someday
Light will come
and that is enough
for now.

What Gives Me Hope The promise of a new day.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by ...speaking locally...expand MARTA (public rapid transit) throughout the ENTIRE metro Atlanta area. This would be a very positive step toward improving our air quality and lessening the grip that traffic has on our beautiful city.

What Scares Me Hmmm-there are many ways to be scared:, movies with demonic kids toys scare me, don't like deep water since I can't swim, plus spiders kinda freak me out, But what REALLY frightens me is:, willful ignorance and apathy, the fact that we are killing our planet
