I’ve Learned; Help Yourself
The pictures are there
The memories are there
What isn’t there is the fulfillment
Between our toes
The itching earning and desire
That fills our hearts with every breathe
What wasn’t there were your ears
How hard was it to listen
I gave you everything down to the core
What I didn’t give was a free pass to happiness
Did that disturb you?
I lived it learned it and valued it
You can’t just steal it from me.
Learn to learn for yourself
Learn to think for yourself
Learn to live for yourself
Learn to love for yourself
At last we awake
To what we had thought
Was the end to a search
Of heavenly descent
You envied it and I could tell
You wanted it and you weren’t ready
You wanted it and you couldn’t see
A single star in the sky let alone the sun
You only saw yourself and the sway of an arm.
