i'll join you.
i've watched people get eaten alive.
mostly they like drugs
the venus fly trap that draws them in
with flourescent colors pleasing to the eye
and then snaps shut.
i've seen kids get swallowed up in macadam.
they think they can make it
the streets look like fun on the surface
they taste like freedom and rebellion
until they trip in the cracks.
i've been held in a cell counting bricks like my chances.
how did i get here again?
this is what you get when you try to
take freedom into your own hands
i fucked up.
i've seen so much now that haunts me in sleep.
the blackhole barrel of a gun in my face
a heroin addict scratching until she bled
the spitting image of a mother i never knew
my list could go on for a mile
and you still wouldn't understand.
but we all know what it's like
to long to die
just so you'll never have to feel again.
sometimes we try the drink
to drown out the
smoke them out
burn them out
slice them to slivers
but they still remain
underneath it all.
we just layer up on disguises
and try to
ourselves at all costs.
remember when you came of age
when you became a young woman
when you became a young man
the struggle to find your identity and
we all used those words.
remember your dark years, as i have.
in our negative behaviors
and our belief that we were not the problem
only led us further down that path
and some of us keep going.
if you want to turn around, i'll join you.
