Thoughts Volume XV: Life 101

Here is a rather simple lesson plan based on discovery and loss
Soulful vessels struggling to see through any fog
Looking for anyone to assist when our road meets a cross
Frozen over these moments in time put in pause
Ripping apart actions and there reaction like gifts from Mr. Clause 5
Striving to grasp and understand Mother Nature’s law
Why regardless how may now move, it all started with a crawl
Small personal accomplishments we all place on a wall
Trophies loved ones used to tell us how we’ve done so well
Awards which loss value the second after we’ve failed 10
Providing little to no support after we heal
On the path way to recover lost dreams that were killed off
The ones that’ve been there longer than the person we sleep with
Lifelong aspirations, flipped with a twist
Winning, then losing in a real life game of chess 15
Left with a mountain of thoughts waiting to get off your chest
Like would things be so different if we were at our best
Or was this just a misunderstood sign of the blessed
Avoiding that which never lives up to any test
Revelations found when you’ve given your all till nothing left 20
Different techniques used to make it through these twelve steps
An answer for those endless days and nights of stress
Unveiling this introspection gift found from within the mess of life
Pain felt sorting through unresolved thoughts
Pressing pause now to expose parts which’ve always seemed a bit off 25
A map helping when it feels you’re still young and lost
When it’s normal to ignore these heavy thoughts and their cost
Relying on small things to build a new firm structure to trust
Something tolerable to any eventual rust
As good times pass by in what always seems like a rush 30
While these bad ones remain like a case of uncontrolled lust
Why happiness feels as if it’s more like moments of luck
Where reality is when it finally hits you, you’re forever stuck
Helplessly knowing for all you try, you’ll forever be stuck
Prisoner to an unnatural desire to give it all up 35
Staring aimlessly, passengers on a hell bound bus
Unable to comprehend what all of this means to us
Ignoring the filling, focused more on just the crust
Loving the image, ignoring each stroke from this brush
Facts which give off a false bravado, this here is tough 40
Crippled, still unable to cling to a crutch
Awaking to remorse that’ll act as todays lunch
Emotions of pain which’ll leave a spike in any punch
Recovering from a night that requires your stomach be pumped
Hung-over in life 101, focused on only the bullet points 45
