Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. -Habakkuk 1:5


I like having someone on

my side
‘cause usually I feel so
indifferent
like everyone is always against my will

and I don’t know if I’m aware
of the price, eventually
I will pay

oh, it’s undeniable
because all will pay
in the end
we all will pay

so tell me
interest me
don’t leave me



here
standing alone
atop the highest hill in the horizon
‘cause I’m lost and torn

and I’m sick,
so sick of this waste
minutes simply

away
we’re slipping on by.

and still, they criticize
always having something more to add

and to think it wouldn’t come back around,
you knew, in the back of your mind you knew.
but I know, oh I know.
of course I know.

and to think this is the first time,
it’s not, no I’ve heard it all before.
nothing has changed, I’ve known all along.
I’ve known, but kept it so quietly and conveniently contained.


foolish mistakes, I’m shattered
and I have lost all sense of what really mattered
