There are a select few people who are essential to my entire well-being Embarrassed that I haven’t thanked you for the love you gave to me I must tackle the troubles that double in size, strength and everything Sorry that I have obsessed with bizarre theories and thoughts foolishly I was kept captive in my lack of originality and creativity for so long I’m wondering if I’ll ever regain my recognition and applause all along Don’t grieve for the downfalls that drag me down to the ground mercilessly Honestly, those weaknesses that ensnared me so will turn to strengths to save me I am a soldier of might – I might not be in your viewpoint I’m a vigilant, strong knight Alright, I will stand tall at some point Maybe, to calm myself completely down, I might just smoke a joint – oh yes, a joint Perhaps, it will ease the anxiety full-blown Or…maybe not – just an idea…not to disappoint My hopeful diligence towards God has been rather low I’m so apologetic, but He knows I’m sorry, yeah, I know I haven’t been His beneficial servant and I plan to do so soon As soon as I get my life straightened up substantially by noon I am barely a butterfly, crawling out of my cocoon But, I need a little fixing and adjusting like a guitar tune I have dealt with your dangerous decision-making; instead, tied my worries unto a floating balloon So, what have I done to horribly hurt you? Did I take advantage of you? Is that true? I showed my gratefulness to you a day too late But, at least I had a heart to prove to you, despite fearing our fate, That my altruistic appreciation is what I anticipate I don’t hate you – all I’m willing to do is wait…I take a bow and wait I am willing to show you a thousand more times That I appreciate your helpful tips to live happier…It’s kind that you’ve been nicer It’s outlandish how the clock constantly chimes Thank you for making me alive by surviving a life that should’ve been a lot easier I hang my hopes on high and let it shine bright I forget the past and let it die all the way tonight I learned from it and lived through it, so why do I need to reflect on it any further? I’m afraid I will be stepped on mindlessly and recklessly like a mat, left in the back burner I do regret that I have used you very vindictively – Also, in spite of you, mind you..I did so accidently You loathe my many manias and you think I’m dim-witted You told me to do a 360 spin in my life – I agreed and admitted You’re right and I am not ashamed or pushed out of shape about it You’re just trying to help me lead with a more productive and optimistic outlet I recognize that you are struggling to be a good example (and you're doing okay, don't worry) I acknowledge your efforts of expecting the same from me (that responsibility is too ample) I am not as compassionate as you, but at least I am not a manipulative jerk It’s ironic that you are so nice, yet you were so mean to push me to do too much work Doing a 360 spin is harder than you think, don’t you think? You pushed me to a difficult level of change – how awfully strange I feel like I am drowning and I’m like water down the sink Drain away the rain and rinse away my pain for a change My fourth of July has been like avalanching fireworks in my mind Something has moved me tremendously and no one left me behind I realized that I was surrounded by friends and strangers alike thankfully You looked after me, so I don’t focus on your wrongs, committed carelessly It’s divine that you are feeling fine amongst your family and friends We have conquered our beginnings and we have met all our ends I am aware that time is cruel and unkind, but we must press on, regardless of inner-doubt You must learn to manage your feelings and decipher them from logic…you know what I am talking about Sometimes, I feel as though I don’t make sense nowadays Pretty much everything I do are a great amount of grays I have been straying out of the narrow route of righteous serenity After all the risks we took too many times, I expect to be left alone frankly Together, we will make surviving strife in this life essential and necessary I will say this once again – I didn’t mean to show very little gratitude I must tackle the twangs of tribulation that dare to shatter us apart daily I was a reckless, boisterous individual; now, reserved and less crude
