Keepin' It Real by Jymi Cliche

sights and sounds
invade my life
like being held down
by hounds
as they take their rounds
and they try to devour me
yet another hour's gone by
and i can see
the things i would rather forget-
my few true regrets
and i'm set
to change my ways
but i still sleep thru the days
because my dreams
are telling me things...
things i need to learn
when will it be my turn?
and do i deserve one?
i think i do now
but the past still
makes me ask how
i could ever have snapped
to the point
where it'd take
almost 30 years
to snap back.
if i could just go back
i'd have taken that smack
over these daily attacks
my anxiety's whack
and i can't take back my mistakes.
so instead i feel a stake
in my heart
and my mind tends to flake.
but i'm much stronger now
and harder to break.
i thank the lord or whoever
that my soul will now live forever
and i know you can never say never
because i thought i'd never
get better and never heal.
now here i am in the flesh
almost 31
and keeping it real.
