I Am Hanging My Coat Up And I Will Come Back Later

You Have To Know When You Have Been Licked

Yes When your butt got a good kicking

Times are tough and those who have bruises can never hide the pain

The shadows of darkness follow you where ever you go

Time and time again you are faced with the same situation

But the results never change

You are a victim

You feel the shame

You try to run

But you know there is no where to go

Others see it as plain as day

It is your choice to feel this emotional roller coaster ride after ride

The scars cut deep into the skin

Your ego has been shattered

At times you try to go free

Only to soon give up when things get ugly

Thinking this is the solution

I can go where I feel safe from new fears

The old ones are just roomies who will curse until the midnight hour

I can handle them

I hold them and understand their fear

Each breath I take I feel the dissatisfaction and blame

No time to change life because it is not for me to understand

Just to witness and watch as I experience it first hand

Great work. Only thing we can change is ourselves, right?

Dim Flaxenwick You are so right.Let everyone else be who they want to be.There is only so much time in a day.If we focus on our own life we can be busy for many lives to come.Sometimes we are not ready for change and then change will never come.Thanks again.

Very beautiful but a bit sad.

I tend towards pessimism myself, but have been trying to see the glass more as half full than half empty. I think that happiness is a choice - although it can be more difficult to attain when external circumstances conspire against you.
