Lions

                                                                                                                                          .

Find the edge

and feel the fray.

Pull the thread

until it breaks.

Watch it all

just fall away.

Another life decays.

Thought you were

better off this way.

                                                                                                                                          .

Like a lion in a cage.

A whole life

locked away.

The mask of your disgrace

always hid your face.

Said you were

better off this way.

                                                                                                                                          .

Not gonna ask

the reasons why

so many climb

up to the sky,

to tie a rope

around the Moon,

say their last good-bye,

and leave us

far too soon.

                                                                                                                                          .

Sat on the beach

the other day,

watching the world

just do its thing.

Sitting here,

listening to the waves,

alive and still in pain.

I think I’m better off this way.

                                                                                                                                          .

                                                                                                                                          .
