There is no right or wrong way to live. We simply just live.


I’ve been deaf to your requests.
I’ve been lame to your demands.
I’ve been blind to your messages.
When you start to plead,
I go into hiding.

I couldn’t hear when you yelled in my ear.
I wouldn’t move as much as you pushed me.
I couldn’t see when you looked into my eyes.
If I gave you the truth,
I’d be damaged even more.

I don’t hear any good reasons.
I can’t feel the love.
I still don’t see a connection between us.
You sing of friendship.
Belt it out so strong.
Sorry, I can’t sing along.
When it comes to that,
I’m tone-deaf.
