The Test

Look around this awful mess
Knew I’d never pass the test
To many rules set in my way
And I can’t try again some day

Just one chance and that was all
The stakes so high and still I fall
Wasn’t good enough to make it through
Wasn’t strong enough to make stage two

I guess it’s good I’m ruled out now
Would have exhausted myself anyhow
Just wish I could have done it right
Then maybe I could sleep through the night

Guilt and sorrows locked inside
I try so hard to make them hide
Yet they escaped and now I’m done
Died before they pulled the gun

You might expect some to be sad
But really, they should all be glad
It’s one more broken thing thrown out
One less thing to worry about

So call them cruel or what you will
I have no hard feelings still
They did no wrong to me so why
Would I do any more than cry

The past is gone, will not return
So why bring back a healing burn
Leave the cuts to heal themselves
Don’t bring it all back in future delves

The end is the end, don’t drag it out
It’s just not worth the angry shout
Calm down and rest, it’s been well earned
With all the lessons you were forced to learn
