A Delirious Drag

Your scars from the past will soon heal…
There are more and more blessings to reveal
Wondering where have you been hiding
In the shadows in which you were abiding?

I apologize for being a delirious drag…
Now, I’m speechless to say the least, friend of mine
Life is like the childhood game of tag
Who’s it? The beauty or the beast? Feeling confused has never been so fine…
Been pushed out of the margins all my life, but I’ll be just fine…
Even though all I have left was truly not mine, 
So I’ll just wait in line…

Humility is hard to find in a world of greed and arrogance
What about I buy myself a faithful and foolish-free fragrance?
I need a shoulder to lean on during these hardships I face
I need to wake up from this nightmare I’m in…hidden from my trace…
But, it will melt away into His grace…
I need to embrace my pace during this race…

I’ve been in a bewildered state and I have no clue why
Sometimes, I feel the urge to sit down and cry…my tears are running dry…I resume on, living this lie with a sigh…
No! Not now – I can’t just give up and give in to a failure mentality!
I got to have my head up above the surface of negativity 

I need relief from this grief…
I need to breathe; a will to survive, so let me go…
I need a brief moment of ‘me’ time...it’s not always ‘you’ time…good grief…
I want you to know I love you so although, I need to let you know – 

I’m so fed up with the lies you tell me on a daily basis
I see right through them so clearly now…the truth will see to it in a bit
You are deceived by thinking you’re in the light when you in the abyss…
Hey, I won’t even listen to your rambling and your every childish fit

We’ve been both in a delirious state 
Sorry for pointing fingers at you quite often…
Maybe it’s fate that we both understand where we both stand and each of us can pull our own weight
All of this will be over…just count to ten…

1-2-3-4-5
Be brave, for we survived! We are alive!
6-7-8-9-10
We are like Daniel out of the lion’s den…

I don’t remember a lot, but I recall you and how we were happier back then…
I was like the most enthusiastic poet with his quivering, motivated pen!
I don’t know where my old self has been or where yours has been,
But I know now that I have grown stronger with adequate discipline

You’ve got me in a trance by your eloquent, elegant dance
You’ve got my head spinning ‘round and ‘round by luck’s chance
You really know how to enhance my manias and low points to a certain degree
The words I spill out for your eyes to see will never explain what is on my mind, concerning you and me…
However, I’ve somewhat put my point straight across for the most part
We aren’t the only ones, witnessing our dazed frame of thought, slowing fading away – God will take heart and mend our scars of the past, tearing us apart

Just put it in His hands and He will take care of it
I don’t mean to act bitter and unreasonable to you lately
You still have your attitude of gratitude and your wit
I don’t mean to act hostile or anything of the sort frankly

Your memories in this lifetime are spinning like a hamster wheel
There are more and more mysteries and clues thereof to unfold 
Wondering if I hurt your feelings in any way
Or is it my fault that you’ve been hiding away?

I pray we’ll no longer be a delirious drag
We can share our problems and solutions if you don’t mind
Our worries are like the exhaustion of jetlag 
I just don’t want to lose our trust or fall further behind

I apologize for being a delirious drag…
Now, I’m speechless to say the least, friend of mine
Life is like the childhood game of tag
Who’s it? The greatest or the least? Feeling scatterbrained has never been so…painfully…fine
Oh God, just show us a way out of this fuzzy frame of mind…
Give us a sign or we’ll be on the road of Left Behind

Let the time of our lives unwind…
While we move forward from a discouraged mind…
Let the uncertainty of our lives fade to gray,
For we have better days ahead and we will say what we need to say 

Let’s make sense in what we say
Let’s live life happily in no dismay
Let’s be like the shining sun in May
For, summer will melt away Winter’s disarray
