All my Friends Fell

I watched all my friends fall, in and out of old love
 
Shame took the hardest, and hope hung from a limb
 
Sadness drowned in her own tears, and anger forgot how to swim
 
Regret learned to fly, jealousy hit the ground
 
Lies became real quiet, and honesty discovered sound
 
 
 
I watched all my friends leave, one by one they're gone
 
Little steps from here to there, to go where they please
 
Pain learned to walk, and temptation found redemption in the trees
 
Judgment ran away, from a horrible insecure illness
 
Past became friends with the present, and gave way to happiness
 
 
 
I watched all my friends grow, from the seeds to big flowers
 
Leaping tall buildings in one bound, absorbing the world and its powers
 
Joy tripped and fell, landed on top of broken, and formed strong
 
Brave decided to take one for the team, comfort soon became wrong
 
Future learned to dance, and swayed to the rhythm of now
 
 
 
I watched all my friends fall off of me, dripping from my skin
 
Exiting in waves of rushing emotions,
 
to only reveal what was within
