Atonement

Life won't go over easy.
From this spot.
To the edge of the earth.
Lack of common worth.
I know it could be so much worse.
But does that make it such a curse.
To talk about our problems.
In an open conversation.
Now I'm wondering.

"What if I'm not strong enough?"
"Then I'll hold out with you."
"What if I meet my end?"
"Then, that is what life has planned."
"What If I'm scared to die?"
"I can say you're not the only one."

Now I know, I know.
Maybe It's not as hard as it seems.
Now I know, I know.
I was never one of the team.
Now I know, I know.
We never know what life could bring.

The feelings, I have lost them.
Where have they gone.
Oh I'll tell you, I'll tell you.
You've had them all along.

I've taken atonement with
What I've done.
This war is over, and I have won.
I've realized my mistakes.
and What they make of me.

There are beauties in life,
I'll give you that.
But does it really stop at that?
There is so much more,
Than what you see.
For instance,
What you feel, think, and breathe.

Now I know I know.
You can't live your life in the past.
I know, I know.
Life can go by so, fast.
I know, I know.
That many things may not last.
But with much haste.
We must not waste.
The time we can be enjoying,
Right now.
