Future staring at my name,
Judging moments worth of blame.
How will I appease the curve?
Who should I be prepared to serve?
My foolish years, they begged, they lied
Convincing time to take my side.
Proving efforts that fell short,
I made mistakes I couldn’t afford.
So here’s to life, my only friend
That’s been with me ‘til the end.
There comes a time one must admit,
Your heart won’t burn if it’s not lit.
