2 AM ramblings, just like it always was…

time passes and chances avail

forward he says
away from this world
where he lost his way
once again
like an old friend
like the many times
when he said
and finally
he moves
not ready to die
just yet
even though
death has crept
a little closer

what sadness
these years
have brought
where the promises made
to break
the cycle
of generational pain
the conflict
could not help
but avoid being broken

he cries for her
his own blood
he cries of this crazy world
which has
wounded her

but he has to move forward
try again
maybe for the final time
lest his tears
too soon
become dried forever

forward my friend
come on
let’s go

I guess time drags you into the future
only memories might weigh you much into the past
