show me the way
and i'll follow
show me love
and i'll accept it
but show me malice
and all hell will escape
try not to carry all your burdens at once since
the bird builds its nest step by step
and finds itself within his natural habits
but i shout to them to help me find myself
but i am met with plastic smiles and false reassurances
with icing and promises that wring me into
a trance that lets me believe them.
i scrape the inside of my soul to grab a silver
of life to grow and fondle over
but i find nothing.
