As the leaves lay on the ground
all hope crushed beyond recognition,
they bear no resemblance
to the blossoming sunshine they once were seasons past.
betrayed by trees that once held their hope.
Who are you to lay your burden on another man
to place such hardened guilt on a heavy soul
You forget, his’ just a man like you
If you can’t shine bright, what are the odds he will shine brighter
like the tree and the leaves, man wither’s away
in your very presence
whilst you place blame’s
Have you tried pulling apart the darkness?
when does personal responsibility comes into play,
your mistake, is thinking the world owe’s you for your contributions.
when in reality, your heirlooms and theirs are uneven odds.
