From July 8, 2013- Not the One

Always behind, never ahead

Watching others pass you by

You wonder where your life is

Where it’s came from

Where it’s going

On the sidelines there’s a lot to see

Observe the lucky and blessed

Watch those who aren’t fall

Broken and on their knees

Like yourself

You’ve got nowhere to go

No one to help you out

Feeling alone and lost

In a vast mixed up jungle

Where the weeds are high

No flowers to be picked

Shielding hope of all redemption

Of yourself

[I don’t want to be the one on the sidelines

Don’t want to wonder what it’s like

To love another without conditions

To live free of doubt and frustration

I don’t want to be the one chasing dreams

While nightmares hunt me down

Again and again

In a disillusioned time and place]

You keep your heart folded

Neatly in a locked case

No one can see it-

Can find it to make it theirs

Is this how you want it?

To feel so guarded

Do you want devotion?

Instead of devastation?

There needs to be a transition

A way out of the maze

Once forever dwelled in

Break the chains holding you back

Challenge the burdens thrown

On you constantly

Live to defeat them

Rise above everyday expectations

[I don’t want to be the one on the sidelines

Don’t want to wonder what it’s like

To love another without conditions

To live free of doubt and frustration

I don’t want to be the one chasing dreams

While nightmares hunt me down

Again and again

In a disillusioned time and place]
