Kicking the Chair

There’s only so many steps

you can take

before you fall

 

What we think will help us

typically lurks inside

crippling us all

 

Can we stop

for just one moment

and be?

 

How astonishing

our world could be

if we could see

 

Minus lyric, minus line

take the pride

and the stiff neck

 

Perhaps we’d learn

to breathe, to love

reflect

 

Tired of following rules

created to

kill

 

All our hearts

are dying

another day, another pill

 

Ignoring away the pain

the hurt

we step into our own noose

 

And look, I didn’t even

rhyme

the whole time
