I hear your pleas, I see your desperation,
Yet you don't understand, life is full of trepidations.
You are like a gum under my shoe,
Stuck there until a knife forces you to unglue.
You say hold me, I say learn to let go,
If you are ever holding on to the brim, I might push you off.
for we can be far or close and I wouldn't cross the road.
Your sadness is unreasonable, your situation an overstatement,
You claim to be a fallen angel, I see nothing but a rattling serpent.
So heed my words now, so that 'I was never told' never crosses your lips,
I see right through your lies, and your attention seeking whims,
You still have the chance to change to the truth,
For you are facing a shadow, a true sleuth.
You say hold me, I say face facts & let go,
So when you're feeling on top again, know you're still below.
