A statistic, a number, another news headline,

A mother, a father, walking the breadline.

 

 

A baby, a toddler, and soon enough youth,

Misguided, turned violent, sheltered from the truth.

 

 

Your first car, first job, your first home,

The first bailiff knock from your first personal loan.

 

 

The bottles, the baggies, the smoke and the laughter,

The good times gone sour, the trip into disaster.

 

 

The last few sober memories, the good times you sought,

The bad times you had, and the good times you bought.

 

 

For life without purpose, without truth, without reason,

Is as much use as the years without seasons.
