I want to say that I’m thankful for the fall
for the pain that has reduced me to a crawl
I want to say that the loss has made me strong
Beyond the colors of right or wrong
I want to say I accept the fate that is mine
that I’m holding up just fine
I want to say that I know the sun shines behind the cloud
that no storm, no thunder can be too loud,
but if I do, I would be lying.
I talk in cliches, that’s how I’m wired
My life is a cliche, how can I not be tired.
Tired enough to write this bare simple verse,
beyond the energy to anymore curse.
I envy time travelers with their groundhog day,
I envy people who have people begging them to stay.
I envy the strong, the mighty, the people who fit in,
I envy people who are not punished for their sins.
If I say anything otherwise, I would be lying.
