Small steps toward a brighter future
My legs bound by your tongue
Like we used to
A large leap to the safe ground below
My eyes shut by your breath
Like they used to
On the throat of a lion
The last to leave
A building burned
Fulfills only the relieved few
While others wait for their happiness
Why must we waltz around the flames?
Why must I congratulate my failure?
I must move on
But my legs are bound together
