Have you ever felt like you were too tired to keep going or that every bad choice you ever made caught up to you? That was how I felt the day I wrote this. The world was heavy on my shoulders….
The road has gotten so long
And I’m too tired to travel that far
What would I see if I went there
I’m much too broken to care
The light inside my spirit died
And my heartbeats have faded away
I’d give a thousand lifetimes
To start with yesterday
Yet it has passed like yesterday’s do
The next day soon into the last
I will not see tomorrow
But I can clearly see the past
It’s broken into memories
The points, the highs, the lows
And I can see me stumbling
All along that broken road.
I wonder who I’d be today
If this, or that, or when
Trouble came to visit
I’d done it different then.
Pieces now too broken
And scattered then to now
If I had another chance
Could I change somehow.
And here it is, my legacy
My life, My time and trouble,
The times when I was riding high
And the times that I would stumble.
If only I could find those pieces
Put them back together,
I’d leave behind a tale to tell
A legend to live forever.
