this is myself

18 Feb

this is the thing, the whole thing

this is the story

i’m still walking across that wind-swept field

willful in my ignorance

this is the tragedy

but i can’t give up yet

this is myself

this is the why behind the lies

these are the eyes that seldom cry

this is the epiphany

the choice i made

this is all there is, can’t be much else

this is myself

no apologies, no guilt

such things are for men with too much to lose

to live their lives like this

this is myself

down to the bone

sticking out like a sore thumb, i guess

i never did learn
