#424 – “all that’s left”

“all that’s left”


let’s all sing the blues

till we can’t anymore

till our secrets are broken

and our throats are sore

let’s swim out way past

where we’re safe and proud

let’s hurt together

till we all cry out loud

let’s wander too deep

without marking our trail

run in some races

we’ll most surely fail

let’s fall hard on the rocks

and bloody our lives

let’s ready for battles

with no guns or knives

let’s wrestle our children

and scrape up their knees

teach them again

about thank-you and please

let’s walk till we’re tired

and till all that’s left

is one more I love you

and one more breath
