15 days of lotr
15. the end
We set out to save the Shire, and it has been saved, but not for me.
We waste all of our time chasing some finish line,
a point of success we defined in our minds.
A spiral of stress, fear, and doubt…
Oh I used to think that’s what life was about…
Until I laid my eyes on something pure,
more beautiful than I had ever seen before.
She reminded me it’s the journey that counts,
One day the good that you’ve done will come back around.
Everything that you know will fade…
Don’t let the deeds of your past become a trap.
Everyday is destroyed to create… a new dance with fate,
a chance to learn from our mistakes.
I used to look at the world through a half fucked-up glass,
until Tony told me that my dreams are a map.
I thought about this eviction scene…
The American dream ripped from under our feet.
Some people think that a vote sets them free,
well tell that to the family asleep on the streets.
When I woke up in a park surrounded by friends,
I knew these felon politicians wouldn’t stop us again.
Everything that you love will fade,
Sometimes we know that things will never be the same.
Everyday we strengthen our hearts,
we learn that every end is just another start.
Donna and I got one of the Mitch Clem portraits and it’s so good. Miss you Donna!
I dropped the BALL huge on missing this one.
Wipe the coke from your nose and take the smirk from your face. I don’t think she knows that you’ve been bleeding all over the place. He’s been waking up now early Sunday morning with nothing but an empty pint left in his hand. Cigarette butts with nothing holy to the fifths and the beer cans littering the empty corners of your dwelling.
Blue eyes behind your glasses, and now you take your glasses off. You ain’t got a lot to say, but you certainly do like to talk. Ain’t fightin’ fair, yeah, the gloves are off. You’re biting ankles, pulling hair in random parking lots. And if you wanna fight you should call me out, call me out, call me out, and if you need to know, feel free to call me up on the phone.
Shit, this rules.
What was the question?
I don’t know.
I wasn’t paying attention.
You say I’m lacking direction.
Is my course corrected?
I don’t fucking know.
I’m gonna find out on my own.
