Up and down the hill I ran...slower each time getting further from home... Ran away just to run back and each time I'm getting older and fading away...Grew up in somebody elses eyes...Never perfect, there's no such thing... Ate many a words with a full belly...Sometimes misunderstood... Cried in the rain most of the time but always came out dry...And the nose grew but never got too big...And all those words that went out that ear, caught up with me and reminded me of my Grandfather each and every time...Maybe you're right this time...And again the fork in the road split me apart...A poor man with nothing to loose...Just a big heart...Saw death many a times...Acted like I didn't care...But I'm still here...You only need one memory to bring you more...Smoked cancer like it was sex...Found myself in drugs...Carry on, carry on my friend...Which I've lost so many...We've all acted with the best of them...We just didn't get paid...It's gonna be ok...Never was what I wanted to be...Never knew how...So what does that tell me?...The lessons that are important were never taught in school...What was that Golden Rule?...Life is funnier when you're floating...And much more harsh when you're coming down...Climbed that ladder but didn't like the view...And now I'm wandering around wondering what it's like to fly...And why do all my thoughts come at night?...Maybe cuz I "act a fool"...I've been a liar, a pauper, and a thief...I've also been a lover, a friend, a son
all who got lost in grief... Trusted, lusted, and busted...And learned from it all...Learned what was wasting my time...And things that were worth it...And for a brief time I touched peoples lives...Hopefully for the better...Lost in my thoughts a few thousand times...Looked for ways to lose my aggresion...I guess I need stronger lenses...Hell, sometimes I just need shades...I thought monkeys liked to play... but this one likes to be carried on my back...The only thing I found in church was a good place to sleep...If it's "God's" country then why do we have to be inside?...Freedom costs us nothing but yet it can cost you your life...
This amazes me...I was born again as if I just opened my eyes... Told myself life's never gonna catch up...
The tortoise and the hare...THEN I realized...I wasn't the White Rabbit anymore...I wasn't late...I'm right on time...What time you got?...And I went up that hill to claim myself "King" one more time............
What are you waiting for?


the end.
