Watching Distance

Poetry By: Kynase

Some people sit at the sidelines of life, content with mediocrity; whereas, others do not fear inevitable failure. (you guessed it...another poem turned song)

I see you watching from a distance, just like you've always been.

Afraid to step into the clouds, to make amends.

Victory comes to those who try

to finish the race before it started.

If you live the lies that you created

Then search your mind for the truth,

You'll leave this ground don't look behind

or become their machine, and not the man.

Never advancing or returning, just to be.

"What's the point of breathing," you say "if dying becomes the greed?"

It's the knowledge that turns us to the fear

That causes the pain deep down inside.

Like conserving the dollar throughout the year

Just to notice, you're left with a dime.

I see you watching from a distance, just like you've always been.
