Chasing Destiny

Sometimes the decision we make
At the time they are conceived
Make perfect sense
Sadly, we can’t gaze into a crystal ball and see
That decision will haunt you for the rest of
Your life
In my head I've rehearse every probability of scenarios
Of how to say the things that need to be said
Pride is a curse locking out the one who should of
Been holding the key
Now the locks have rusted from tears
The key disappeared an eternity ago
Moreover, I am tired of chasing a dream
When I get close enough to taste humility
It quickly vanishes in the mist
Now I can see my fingertips reaching out to grasp
What was but now is
Slowly, slowly, slowly, I reach out to destiny
To ask for his forgiveness
He looked right through me as if I
Was invisible
I yelled to his retreating figure
He only looked over his shoulder
Sadness aura surrounding his soul

Walking away, away, away…

Shattered Glass

Shattered glass broken promises
Fine crystal to carry a heart upon
A bed of delicate truths
Love is an assortment of
Lies gently concealed in a guise
In its attempt to lure you away
From seeing what is real
Each shattered piece represents
The years of a life spent chasing
A fairy-tale without a prince
No more broken promises
No bed of delicate crystal
Only the hard unadulterated
Facts remain 
Shattered glass can’t be put back
Together again

Life's a Bitch

Life’s a bit**
gets its kicks off
your problems
delivering a ransom to
priceless for payment
Destroying any self respect
you fought so hard to get
in the end all you
have is the life
you’re left with
