A word we say
So often we feel
I will tell you, after these years
The word means nothing
When you haven’t ‘lived’
But means something when you’ve lifted your soul
Higher and higher
A concrete block lifted from beneath
The word ‘happy’ comes into clarity

I want to smear this on my face,Start something new
When I think about this,
And what it’s been
I wonder how I’ve let it go so far
When I tried to tint the glass of my skewed view
I shown that even the hand that feeds you can get bitten
And disgraced, it is,
To be called names that hurt deeper than spoken words
I won’t say that my sunset is pale or my sun is brighter
It is an unlikely duo to be so sad
I am still sad,
In my own right
I could move to a place with a sunset of gold
In a city that harbored more money
I choose (to the regret of some)
A sunset with a shadowy grey
…and a little easier living…
