life change



split decisions sometimes define you
they can crush you and they can blind you
a monster can form and start a storm inside you

it only takes a second to switch sides
they can see through the lies to the tears you cry
the rage takes your center stage

a wrong turn can ruin your life
it can lose you in the doubt it creates and suffocate you with the pain
your fear will come and ease into your heart and harden your wall

its a blur and a mess
scatered around me
things i wanted to forget
the lights come onand its over life is back
now i gotta keep it on track
