Strive to Survive
I want to be gracious, I need to be kind
We are not the same kind anymore
Where did all the flowers go?
He brought me violets, I'd rather have what no
I'll never understand, and I don't say that to
but to clarify.
I will never have lived in your shoes, had your
But I try, I love you.
My God is not your God, though He could be.
You speak of hills and souls,
Oh to transcend to your heart,
and understand your ways is my goal
But not everything is possible for me
Though I love, I do not always understand
The rape of thoughts
the burn of razors on my skin
These things have fled me, and I do not particularly
want them back.
Though I keep trying to understand, I am beginning to
realize that you are a maze,
Maybe what you say is meant to mystify me and everyone
Your pain is real but your justifications fail
It's as if they were falsified,
Your life is lovely, love love lovely
I'll do what I want, I 'll do what I want
