TICK TOCK

Written by: brandy megens

i've been watching them with two blind eyes

listening to their cries that fall upon my deaf ears

i feel their pain through my paralized limbs

i am a prisoner in this so called land of the free

i walk amongst the dead whom believe their still living

i curse my Fathers name in vain outloud

while in silence i beg for His forgiveness

i hold onto hope and faith knowing it's all i have left

i work hand to mouth for a woman that left me long ago

they say promise is a comfort to a fool i am the idiot

i reminisce on what was and loose focus on what is

i am infected with a virus that plagued my common sense

time keeps ticking but my life stands still

i live by the second because my futures expired
