That wee bit of uncertainty
catches ya’ off guard,
lying in wait
how it’s made,
become a student
you don’t like
what you see
you can’t control
take a ride on the three o’clock express;
make that extra cup of coffee you know
is goanna give you the jitters
you’re goanna regret, later.
you’re full into the next chapter;
so, you better start figuring it all out.
cause’ we learned there’s no one who’s
goanna do it for us…
In other words,
you don’t want to be run off the high road
by some jackass
who doesn’t give a
making you crash and burn below
as he stands looking down
you writhing in pain
trapped in your crumpled car
burning in terror
watching your skin fall off your bones.
as I look at my trusted best three friends
in the entire world,
they lie upon my bed with me
day in, day out.
I see my beloved doggie and my two kitties
graciously spending their lives with me
every single night,
every single day,
to whom I give humble thanks and gratefulness
from the very depths of my soul.
we bide our time,
the way we do.
we decide to pull ourselves up once more,
and go on.
