They Forget

Its inside the mind and it flutters

And sings to them the meaning

Try and try even harder

Those who weep it whispers for

Soothing their shallow hearts beat.

"Shhh It’ll all be fine"

We all slip and fall to the long crawl

Not forever only their time will tell.

Our minds yell its going to be fine.

For they the many who

Want it when its bad

And forget it while its good.

It whispers yet again for

I wont be there

But you will.
