My Calling – Ft. Lewis

My Calling
[Lewis Da Lyricist Ft Poetess Dee]

Poetess Dee

Poetry to us is not just a calling,
It lives within us and it is
Up to us to let live that legacy.

We stay up late night’s,
Pen and paper present,
Emotions ready to let go,
Razor on stand by,
Drafting is what we do.

When darkness approaches
All that comes is sadness
And we’re constantly reminded
Of the stress & depression that
Light does not see.

Poetry to us is not a calling,
It lives within us
And us in it.

Poetess Dee


Lewis Da-Lyricist

Poetry to us is
not just a calling,
It lives
within us and
I guess our poetry
grandfathers have chosen us,
To use pen
and paper to express our
inner side of the story.

Poetry is my
I was far asleep the
time it kept calling me,
I was not interested
to respond
to my calling,
For I thought
I am not a born writer
but a born fighter.

My forefathers
proved me wrong
And yes ,
I was wrong
about my calling,
I was destined to
save souls
through pen and paper.

The secret of a well written
story can turn one’s life
diary into the best story
i can possibly write
Because this is my
and I am Born writer.

To My Crush..Yeah,I’m fine just tired.

Dear crush,What am I supposed to answer when you ask ‘are you okay’?

Because I’m pretty sure you don’t want to hear the truth. You just ask to make me think you care about how I feel,wherelse in reality you just want me to say ‘yeah,I’m fine just a bit tired’.
And then you are happy,you don’t have to comfort me or bring me up because after all

I’m fine,Just a bit tired.
Poetess Dee 😊


Take Me To A place .. !!

Take me to a place far away,

Where my face is new

And my name is unknown.
Take me to a place with arrays of stars,

Where the skies are clearer than crystal glass.
Take me to a place where the wind tastes like earth –

Fresh n unfamiliar

With hopes of rebirth.
Take me to a place that is not your home,

Where the people are kind

And the seas are alone.
Take me to a place Where you can take a breath

You can open your heart and feel the world again.
Take me to a place void of pain

You can learn new songs and

There is so much wisdom to gain.
Take me to a place where time isn’t a thing,

where love doesn’t leave,

Where happiness stay and 

Sadness doesn’t sing.

Poetess Dee


I’m Doing Just Fine !!

I’m fine, I’m just tired

Trust me, I know how it feels

I know exactly how it feels to cry in the shower

So no one can hear you

And waiting for everyone to fall asleep,

So you can fall apart

For everything to hurt so bad.
You just want it all to end

I know exactly how it feels

I don’t blame anyone, I did this to myself

Its my fault, everything is my fault

I feel this tiredness that sleep can’t fix

And please stop asking if I’m okay.
I’m tired of lying

I’m tired of living

I’m tired of trying

I’m tired of coping

I’m tired of hoping

I’m tired of existing

I’m tired of breathing.
I’m just done

Because I’m never truly happy

Some days I’m just a little less sad than the rest

When you reach the point of being so sad you’re numb

You’re going to miss the ability to cry

Because depression is like drowning,
And seeing everyone around you breathing

Because depression is not a choice.
Its a deep hole you cannot climb out of

Trust me, I know how it feels

To beg God to just take it all away.
Poetess Dee 🙂
