"I'm So Very Dry" #newsong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 Watch for this cool song I'm working on for my next podcast. 

Lori Jean Finnila Singer Songwriter Podcast

I know I feel dry (deficient or absence) when I feel I'm not loving someone to my 100%.

Verse

Look at me in the bright sunshine

it’s shining off my eyes

like water flowing beautiful ripples of the entirety

of the most beautiful

way you see me most

at my most vulnerable

you’ll see I’m more 

than what’s in front of you



Chorus

All I need is

if only you certify

I’m so dry now

begging you let me command 

the act to arrive

I can part the seas now


Verse

I will clear the waters

of my entire tearful thoughts

transport hope into 

your lonesome heart


Chorus


Verse

Of all the horrible acts

cowardice is what I lack

bringing myself closer

to your vigor


Bridge

I’m beseeching

I don’t know 

I fear I will die

Once you have already taken

all that I have how do I make this right

I’m dry


I’m so dry

I’m so very dry 

I’m so dry

I’m so very dry

"8 Hours I Wait" #newsong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 I know how you feel everyday. I’ve sat many days in anguish praying for my pain to be over. This is a piece of work I wrote in school that got an 'A' and probably helped me land the membership with Sigma Tau Delta. I turned it into a song. Watch for it in the Oct 28 Lori Jean Finnila Singer Songwriter Podcast composed as a song.

8 Hours I Wait



Verse

8 Hours I wait

For someone to see me crawl

I want to breathe again

I wait to breathe again

28 more days

For this fortune to take place

That I'm so destined to

Right now 

Without anyone


Chorus

8 Hours I wait

For someone to take me from this place

To see where I fall

Where I’ve done no wrong

8 Hours I wait


Verse

8 Hours I wait

For you to take me

From this place

So dark

So dreary

No thought

No choice I had

To this theory

8 I wait


Chorus

8 Hours I wait

For someone to take me from this place

To see where I fall

Where I’ve done no wrong

8 Hours I wait


Verse

8 Hours I wait

From this place

That took me

So far from this time with lace

That hurt me so badly

29, 28 days more

To see this haven

Supposed grazen 

To be brought upon me


Chorus

Verse

8 Hours I wait

for my fate

To my next place

Of. no one

Seeing me for who I am

Just a runaway

With no rhyme or reason

Is what they tell me I am


Bridge
So I’ll set here 8 more hours
29 more days, then, 28
Where I'm safe
Though the mats are hard
There’s peace and quiet
At least in my mind

Chorus

8 Hours I wait

For someone to take me from this place

To see where I fall

Where I’ve done no wrong

8 Hours I wait


8 Hours I wait

For someone to see me crawl

I want to breathe again

I wait to breathe again


8 Hours I wait

From this place

That took me

So far 

That hurt me so badly


8 hours I wait


Ooooo oooooo

repeat

Rewrote "Beautiful and Resilient" to "I Can Overcome You" #newsong #lyrics #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 I'm working on a composition for this song and think I have a pretty draft to at least put my lyrics to. Watch for this in my next podcast episode Lori Jean Finnila Singer Songwriter.

"I Can Overcome You" by Lori Jean Finnila

Verse

You take me down

By one look at you

Though I’m drawn to you

I still have fear to face


You’re so powerful

Your strength takes me down

At the same time 

The strongest to my imagination

You are outside of my conception

I’ll find a way to take my steps to you


Chorus

Though my fear appears to be stronger

Your depth is far equal to

I know,

I can overcome you……


Verse

Your dark and long

Dry and strong

Holding me in my chest

I can’t breathe

I can’t see straight

But in reality

You’re just a beautiful place



Am I to  move on from here

And feel my true beauty and resilience

I feel I need to take these steps


And once I’ve done this

They’ll be so many more I know, 

so sadly

But so true


Chorus

Though my fear appears to be stronger

Your depth is far equal to

I know,

I can overcome you……



Verse

Am I to  move on from here

And feel my true beauty and resilience

I feel I need to take these steps

And once I’ve done this

They’ll be so many more I know

so sadly

But so true


Bridge

But it’s okay

As long as I walk downward to you 

to the end where I cradle the fear that holds me in

I will rescind this beautiful moment with you 

And then will let it go

Have no more fear

Of this feeling 

that proceeds me over


Chorus

Though my fear appears to be stronger

Your depth is far equal to

I know,

I can overcome you……



I can overcome you…..

A Bit of a Poetry/Prose #deadwoman in a Park #unreasonableexpectations #lorijeanfinnila

 This I felt so strongly within this past hour. I could feel the coldness of how unimportant she was. I do remember her as an important woman.

What is the difference between this beautiful woman who is trying to find her beauty and strength in a tent? A Woman's Struggle With the Fear of Camping Alone


Unreasonable Expectations written by Lori Jean Finnila


You are lost now

not knowing what you see

so sure of your fear

before you die



As you lay here dying

no one hears you crying

you eventually die

eventually others who know your pain cry


In the beauty of nature

you find your last home

perhaps finally feeling the safest ever

perhaps it was a wanderer

perhaps it was your fear

that took you to your last day here


I will remember you

I know your journey

I know your path

I am a woman too

who couldn’t fit into

what was expected of us


We all know too much

we can’t fit into this triangle 

of expectations that are unreasonably put upon us

that no one can expect to live through

but some do by chance


Perhaps some still leave earlier

Not in the same way

yet they’ve all known the pain

of the unreasonable expectation


Some die of the exhaustion

Some die of the cold

Some die of murder

Dying becoming too early old


Some die of mere sadness

of no pleasure that they can’t find within their heart

possibly of once known so great

that they can’t ever put their hands on again


But don’t worry now our angel

I do remember as we all know

your pain, your trouble, the unreasonable

expectations of becoming a woman.
