Consistent Improvement


Losing the battle to have you

__I have gained my independence

No longer will I be forced

__into the wanting of you

____that has dragged me to the ground

______and stomped on me


__it is with great pleasure

____that I accept no ownership of you

______nor anybody

And when you let me go

__out of your life

____into the darkness

______I can still see

________no matter how dark it is

I will occupy my time


I will no longer strangle myself

And all I will no longer be lost

Life without you

__I will live to cherish

I will just move along

Ready to be alone

Ready to not love

Ready to not be loved

And ready to not give a fuck

As I sip the juice out of my brain

The noises dismiss me

__into my own thinking

And I'm quite fine with that

The tables shake

And the ground rumbles

And out of thee Earth

__a demon arises

____to challenge

______and tempt me

But with The Lord as my Light

__I stand my ground


__my Higher Power is my sound

And nothing can stop me

__from changing, "at all"

If the whimpering rain

__falls flat "all around"

____I will know what I need to know

______when I take a look around

Thee unjustified matters at hand

__maybe takin' the score to new levels

But that don't mean I can't rebel
