This is about that moment when you realize your grown-up. Whether you’re 18 or 80, it’s a hard revelation.
Hard Way To Climb
A tainted past is a hard thing to bare.
I wave my hands up high,not one to care.
Calling upon the sunlight of the day.
Hoping to chase the shadows away.
In my drab existence, I pray for strength,
To cover this bottomless pit I unknowingly toy with.
I search for guidance in the place of shadows.
Finding the demons who live with no souls after they follow.
Rocks and debris cover me.
Under the earth where light has no place to be.
I search the centuries for something
I can not find.
I realize it now; it’s a hard way to climb.
An uncertain future brings on unwanted anxieties.
Day by day, I lay here trapped by my own complexities.
“Seize the day,” they say, but where to find that lock and key,
But a hole of forgotten dreams is all that is left of me.
Too basic, too jaded are those all around me.
Too deaf, too blind to hear and see.
No senses do I detect in the wake.
I feel destined to run for my own sake.
But the rocks, the debris, they cover me.
Under the where light has no place to be.
I search the centuries for the one thing I shall never find,
But I realize now; it’s a hard way to climb.
She comes to me in the shadows, the girl I used to be.
Dead was she not, just drifting in the sea
My time of crisis,
My time of shame,
Inside this hell,
It’s all the same.
Few roads traveled,
More to follow.
I maybe young,
But I’m not hollow.
A tune of many do you give me,
Stating little in your query.
Am I to say
Lies of deceit reign today.
It’s what we do to survive
In this land of no vision.
Our time is fading, soon to be gone.
Soon, to make that harsh decision.
Words obscured, but making sense.
There’s nothing more to this feud.
To your spineless response I take the pretense.
Now, I’ve paid your dues.
In this word of many do I observe.
Its slaves more than eager to serve.
They no not their worth,
Until the late hour marks the curb.
Blast this world of many to an island of few.
Unread the minds; unstick the glue.
