I’m Still Here

I’m Still Here

Colder and colder I go
As the pain of the past flows
Wish the hand of time could turn
But within I really burn

I am still here in changing
Forgetting the past for my slaying
Though some pains can truly kill
Life is sometimes up the hill

I am awakened again to think
Is life this just a blink?
We are all humans in trailing
Though some live in the sailing

I am alright with my past
Though the failing was my last
I am sane to be the man
Living my time among sane humans

It’s amazing how the world goes
Thinking we know all the flows
Pointing the fingers forgetting the other
And walking in the dark banter

Who knows and who sees?
A question we pose too free
The coin sides are the same
Even our excuses are lame

He is the bad egg we say
But within we hide our tray
The confirmation of tomorrow speaks
All cisterns will soon leak

Who wash the dirty linings?
The heavens will send lightening
We shall see perfection today
But how can that we say
