I went into Spring with anticipation
Everything was well
Every day I was happy
It was only rain that fell.
Summer got the best of me
The heat took my strength
The ability to rise and fall
Made me look at life at length.
Fall reminded me of death
As everything withered away
I realized this is not where I want to be
I want to run away.
Winter grasped it’s cold dead hands
Around this heart of mine
It fooled me into believing again
That Spring would make it fine.
Spring came slowly this year
Then suddenly reminded me I was alone
It never helped to disturb the peace
By hugging a telephone.
Summer scorched me yet again
I felt it’s bitter sun
The warmth is so inviting to some
But it makes me want to run.
It’s Fall again the leaves are dead
There is dying all around
I’m wondering now if I’m not so lost
I’ll never again be found.
Winter likes to taunt me
I’m all alone this year
The enemy comes in waves of three
“Why don’t you have a beer?”
Drunken with the lust of life
I forget my angry soul
Spring makes it all again
Yet I forget to pay the toll.
Summer comes to a blistering start
Everyone around turns red
I wonder if this is really my life
Or maybe I’m just dead?
