How Do You?

How do you get over

What was never really there?

 

How do you enjoy time

When it isn’t even here

 

Can you move on from something,

That lives deep inside?

 

That safe place within

Where you run to hide

 

Even though that refuge is lined with mementos

Of things you would rather forget

 

So even when you try to save yourself

You are just drowning in regret

 

There was once time enough

To get up and shake the dust off

 

To laugh in the face of those who would push you down

And walk away without the things you lost

 

But each fall took its toll

Each push had its price

 

Getting up, walking away,

No longer suffice

 

It’s a struggle, a fight,

To get back up again

 

When you have had enough,

Would rather wallow in pain

 

So how do you get past that?

Past the years and hurts holding you down?

 

How do you lift above your troubles

When they are always all around.
