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.
