Danger, Keep Away! (revised)

By , South Plainfiled, NJ
Danger, keep away!
For what I’m about to say is not for the faint hearted

Today I shall teach the lesson of fear

One day there was a little girl
Who went along just as she did everyday
Living her life to what she thought was the fullest.
But today was different,
Today she will learn what she fears the most
For no one is fearless

No one ever know the true meaning of death
Not till the day it happens

Death-Never coming back again!
Do you know what that means?
They’re gone!
Play time is over and she must face life for what it is

She cries and cries for days on end
Feeling so alone
Staring at the shards of glass sitting beside her
As her velvet blood leaks onto the ceramic tiling
She turns away in shame
Why take the easy way out?
If you do hells waiting

What does running do?
The pain will still be there,
It will follow you
Get ready cuz it’s here to stay

Spare me your soliloquy that you prepared oh so well
What do you know?

Death-never coming back again!

Do you know what that means?
Do you really?
Can you honestly sit there and tell me you know what I’m going through

Spare your condolences
The I’m sorry for your loss
The he’s in a better place now!

No more road trips to Blue Ash Ohio
Our time cut short.
Play time is over and I must face life for what it is.
No longer the little girl that I once was.
My whole life crashing down on me

Today I will go along like I do everyday
Living my life to what I hope is the fullest.
But today will be different,
Because today I will accept what I fear the most

Death-Never coming back again!

But not just death itself , but the loneness that it brings
For that fear is deep inside my soul
Which I cannot control
For it builds these walls these barriers
That I cannot break down
As I cry for help no one hears

For that one person who cared
That one person who listens is gone
In your so called “better place”

But today is different
Today I’ll pray that one day I’ll be free from these barriers
Maybe I don t need the older brother that I once had.
Maybe what I need is a friend.
That’s here to listen and hopefully here to stay

Danger, Keep away!
For what I’m about to say is not for the faint hearted.
