There are two flip sides, to every angle in life.
Some ride these angles like wheels on a bike.
Others are afraid, that the world ,will see their insides.
So they cower, head bowed, and runaway from the light.
Missing opportunities that could have changed their lives.
Accepting what others, see with their eyes.
Burying dreams that burn to rise.
A battle of self verses self and the loser remains I.
So the question I ask of you today?
Will you continue to let others direct your way?
Will you hide in shadows for the rest of your life?
Conjured in a web of secrets and lies.
Or could today be the day you get on that bike.
Will this be the time you demand your right?
To live in spite of what others like.
Where your dreams, where not implied.
Where your heart resides.
Where your own thoughts are your guide.
Where who you are, was not compromised.
I FEEL LIKE A KING WHO RULES WITH NO SERVANTS
JUST A LONELY MAN ON HIS THRONE,
OR A PRISONER IN JAIL LONGING TO BE HOME, BUT EVEN HIS HOUSE IS NOT A HOME
OR TO HAVE A THOUSAND PHONE NUMBERS BUT NO ONES EVER THERE TO PICK UP THE PHONE!
OH HOW I FEEL SO ALONE!!!!
LIKE A DOG THAT HAS BITTEN THE HAND THAT FEEDS
NOW ALL HE WANTS IS A BONE!
TO THINK YOU’VE MADE A IMPACT ON THE WORLD
BUT REALITY IS YOUR REALLY NOT THAT KNOWN.
AND WHEN YOUR LOCKED UP OR DEAD THEY DON’T MOURN CUZ ONCE YOUR ”GONE” YOUR GONE!
DARKNESS OFFERS COMFORT….
CUZ YOU CAN ”IMAGINE” SOMEONE’S THERE
BUT LIGHT CAUSES DEVASTATION CUZ IT FORCES YOU TO SEE CLEAR,
TO BE ALONE MEANS NO ONE HAS YOUR BACK
AND OPENS YOUR MIND TO A WORD OR FEAR!
LIKE TO BE STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF A HIGHWAY BLIND WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO HEAR!
I HOPE I HAVEN’T TAKEN YOU TOO DEEP
BUT THE REALITY OF BEING ALONE HAS REALLY TAKEN ME THERE!
TO BE ALONE OFFERS A QUESTION?
IF THEY DON’T LOVE YOU WHEN YOUR FAR AWAY?
HOW CAN THEY EVER LOVE YOU WHEN YOUR THERE?
