Sense of time


I wanted you to come

With me

But

You couldn’t

It’s funny

that when you’re young

you can’t see

too far ahead

so you never

know

the sense of time

And

what to do with it

A lot has changed

I feel so different

but

the same

I know

it doesn’t make sense

but I do

it’s wonderful

After I get to sit back

and look at it

and say

“It really hasn’t been that bad”

Sometimes It’s Hard To Watch


My Eye

 

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

But I gotta keep my eyes open

In case you fall

I can pick you up

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

But I gotta keep my eyes open

Even when you seem to self-destruct

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

Your words come across the screen

Trying to find your own way

But I tell myself that you’re just letting off steam

But still, it’s hard to watch

Even though I know that you’re destined to be King

It’s still hard to watch

Sometimes my hands beg to cover my eyes

But right before they do

I get a wonderful surprise

I realize that no matter what

I want to see it all

So when you’re King

I can remind you how you rose & did not fall
