you'll get there...


you'll get there...

I know there's things you'd wish to forget,

people you'd choose to no longer face,

the mere mention of going beyond what's expected of us

makes you want to retract trying at all,

every time you listen to those encouraging,

they seem to be the same ones who stare down when you're on the floor.

every obstacle seems to add on a new weight,

but you've failed to see how

it's actually a relevant precept

the further your feet from the edge,

the fresher your perspective becomes,

there's good to come from the unwanted,

it takes a second or two

for the lesson to become clearer
