jagged glass

he wishes for an answer
prays to god all day long
to erase his past of impropriety
he dreams of a family and a house
in colorado in the mountains
far away from all this heartache
he calls home

she yearns for something brighter
wishes daddy wouldn't fight her
wants a daughter
and an unperverted friend

we wonder why our roads are paved
with jagged bits of glass
and why the bottoms of our shoes
are worn down flat
and how a life so unbefitting
struck a soul such as myself
and when did i fall out
of mother's loving arms

he claims a life of sainthood
but he lives a life far from
never shaves and doesn't shower
while the garbage piles up

she wishes she had cancer
then at least there'd be an answer
for the numbing strength
of endless bottles
washing away her grief

we wonder why our roads are paved
with jagged bits of glass
and why the bottoms of our shoes
are worn down flat
and how a life so unbefitting
struck a soul such as myself
and when did we not hear
the phone ring anymore

how did a life so unbefitting
strike us in our youth
and why did we give in
and bite the noose

we follow paths
of cutting heartache
bath in pools of blood
and vainly wander aimlessy
while pain's emotions flood
