I live a straight and narrow life,

In a world full of angles and curves.

The universe is full of strife,

But I choose to abide my own nerves.

Discredit the forlorn,

And abominate the hungry.

Renounce the unborn,

And still there is nothing

That I can do to abandon my selfishness.

What is this mess?

I live a straight and narrow life,

In a world full of angles and curves.

And still there is nothing.

I am trifling-

Unimportant to this scheme.

Some spend their life longing,

To escape this scene.

But redemption will never come,

In a world full of angles and curves

Freedom un-won,

And still there is nothing.

Some problems never find solutions. There isn’t always resolution.

I wish that I could find a way to make a better life one day-

But it seems I’ll sit here idly until I’m sick of all of me.

Not one word, no change, no situation could bring for me a revelation.

Why do I wish and pray for more? I’ll never move beyond that door.

I’m scared- I’m weak and without strength

I’ll wait. Just wait.

No more. No more.
