oh to be finally be awake
with all your beliefs really gone
and you supine on the killing floor
of your own consequence
that is hardest of all to bear
that is the cold truth of looking up
into the empty heavens and knowing
all you've searched for is so far beyond the sky
that even though it is buried deep with in you
you still got lost on the way
at least close this sojourn on earth
with learning that much
maybe next time your load would weigh you down
and you'll have a fighting chance to do right...
