“You”

 

Feeling like

your

up against it

an angry world

looking back

your only breaks

are promises

broken

the bitter truth

rammed down

your throat

your not afraid

the slaughter

continues

another day

that’s pushing

black

you’ve seen the

worst

it’s what your

taking

you try your

best

you still get

hurt

you can’t give

up

won’t shout

surrender

the road your

on

goes nowhere

new

the words she

said

but nothing

spoken

another death

attributed

to you

your sky is

dark

without a

reason

your not

concerned

your friends

are few

the life you

have

is overrated

a rainbow’s

born

each time

you lose

you tip the

scales

in the wrong

direction

you show your

heart

you just get

used

your better

times

you can’t

remember

the past you

hide

is haunting

you

the things you

thought

once really

mattered

were left

behind

when you

were you

you’d buy a

chance

but lost your

token

too many

lies

your time

is through…
