Whatever’s burning is ash
Smoldering versions of failure
Suits wearing a different behavior
But they all smell of traitor

Take a heart and stir it up
It never really mattered much
The bigger the fish, the bigger the bite
The brighter the truth, the lesser the sight

Whatever’s burning is trash
Lying, denying, the awful mistakes
The crying, the trying, the hope that it takes
Love was caught speeding, so I turned on the brakes

Take the flesh and deny it touch
Love was never here to adjudge
Free the sin, accuse the judge
Broken and shattered watch them begrudge

Y’all got to let shit go and stop chasing your tail and making the same mistakes over and over and over.

  1. I completely understand. My depression has zapped my energy. It takes an army some days to get out of bed and brush my teeth. I’m sorry you are feeling low and I hope the new year will bring you some good stuffs. Hang in there. Sending light. X
