The Grading Scale of Life

Sit back and appreciate who this was written for,
The woman living off her knees as she’s just another whore
Doing what’s needed to walk proudly through any door
Living with a cold exterior due to years of bare feet pressed against a cold floor
Afraid only when the frail, show despair for what’s in store
Never once, willing to see what seen when she sits here, alone and bored
A female lion who stretch in silence; never letting out her primal roar
Expressing these unique thoughts like it’s a Picasso painting classified as rare
Alive and well, in spite if these ‘brothers & sisters’ genuinely care or not
Alone in this world, as ‘friends’ only prefer to stand there and stare
Why its easiest to turn away, when real life is standing here
Where it’s inconsequential if its truth; life just isn’t fair
Standing behind words, fully clothed; yet now nude and bare
What she finds a most useful source of unfiltered air
Evidence that she’s the only, fully awake and aware
Proof that isn’t the byproduct of ill-advised dare
Introspection which dictates the tone each new testimonial will wear
Frozen in ink, by way of abnormal emotions from past years
The reasoning behind endless nights of empty tears
Hooking on an avenue aimed at tackling yesterday’s mountain of fears
Kids who no longer scared of getting anything pierced
Recognizing these are the words, why there’ll never be world peace
Observant of this destructive cycles which repeats its self.
Explaining loud and clear why it’s pointless asking others for help,
Not with the love from another or with one’s own health
As it’s this strength that defines one’s true wealth
Living life as the bottom of this lyrical well
Freedom from the worry of ending up in either heaven or hell
Instead smiling again in a puddle of blood in spite of having fell
People well-adjusted to these words, ‘you’ve failed’
Here using what God gave you, as a form of spiritual bail
A class above any average grading scale in life
