I can’t breathe anymore
this lesson I swear I already know

I’ve had to relearn it several times before
Hmm let’s ponder that thought 

Why must I keep repeating the same quest
again and again
What is it I’m just not seeing
Perhaps I’ve no epiphany 

Reading between the lines just a bit too much
Giving me directions I cannot trust
Accepting without exceptions
Although I must
Always questioning 

I’m starting to see where I may have left 
some extremely valuable aspects in respect to perpetrating the temptation 
Tempting though not sweet 
is the everlasting torch that’s never going to be complete  
Only competitively repetitive speaking
Wills this conquest’s endeavor to be a true conquer

Walk free in amnesty
