 Closing The Blinds
-Hakiem Jihad 

 

It’s kind of crazy how life just changes,
You never know when, or how, so it’s hard to expect it.
I try to be prepared, but sometimes it’s just too hard to
I ask around for guidance, but they say, “There’s no one here to guide you”.
The light doesn’t shine much, so, I guess I’m blind to the world
Don’t want to see it anyway so; I’m closing the blinds on the world.

It’s kind of crazy how life just changes,
My friends are all gone, they faded in the distance.
We promised to stay tight, no matter what, until the end,
They don’t call, so I don’t either, I guess now is where we end.
They all have dreams, to become famous, and wealthy,
I do to, but before all, I dream that I’m healthy.
I say if they want to move on, then hey, I’ll move on to,
I don’t need them anyway so; I’m closing the blinds on my friends.

It’s kind of crazy how life just changes,
I met a girl, who I thought I was in love with,
She was everything that a guy like me ever wanted,
Her smile, her voice, her touch, put me in a world of my own,
But things started to change, no more calls on the phone.
She told me we should just be friends, so I said, “Where there was you, there was plenty”
I cried to myself, before closing the blinds on that girl.

It’s kind of crazy how life just changes,
I look in the mirror, and can’t identify whose staring
I’m not myself lately, I look, lose control and start tearing.
I have dreams that, I’m no longer committed to,
Funny how, I used to think I could do anything I wanted to.
I live my life always trying to please others, but forget about me.
I don’t think I’m meant to be happy, so, I’m closing the blinds on myself.
