I Didn’t climb the forest to see what was ahead of me
Push the ground to make sure everything was solid.
Head towards the easiest target I could find
Lose myself and integrity in my loss.
Steal birds from their nests to test frailty
Seize the moment, at exactly the wrong time
Find myself lost, then claim it to be so.
I didn’t crush what I could of my past
To make my future pay for it,
I lived there for years
Uncertain as to what was going to become of me.
I didn’t waver in my inability to chase peace
Or wonder what the cost off all that would be.
What I didn’t do was sit around
Whether I was damaging
