BURN RELIEF


BURN RELIEF

S.JENSEN © 2017

EYES OPENED

TO THE WAY

THINGS ARE

AND HOW

THEY HAVE BEEN

FOR AWHILE

NOW

AS THE SKIES

THAT WERE BLUE

TURN TO GREY

AND BLACK

AND THE

HEAT GIVES WAY

TO THE STORM

ON ITS WAY

I REMAIN

CALM TO

THE SNIDE COMMENTS

THE

DARKNESS

WILL NOT

GET IN

I CAN HEAR

THE LAUGHTER

AND ITS JUST

THAT

AND I WALK AWAY

THERE IS A POINT

WE ALL HAVE

TO SAY

I HAVE HAD

ENOUGH

AND DRAW THAT

LINE

AND

DECIDE

TO LET IT GO

AND WALK AWAY

FROM IT ALL

AND THE DAMAGE

DONE

WAS SO NOT

MY FAULT

I AM SORRY

FOR ANYTHING

THAT EVER

CAUSED

UNNECESSARY

PAIN

TO THOSE

I CARED

AND LOVED

BECAUSE

OF THE FOOLISHNESS

THAT

HAD TO BE

SO TWISTED

AND HOW

THEY STILL

SNIDE

AND HAVE NO

CLUE

I GUESS

THEIR EYES WILL

BE WIDE OPEN

ONE DAY

AND

I AM NOT

THE ONE

TO OPEN THEM

OR CLOSE THEM

I WILL CARRY

ON

AS I AM

AND NEVER

LOOK BACK

AT WHAT

WAS CLEARLY

NOT

ME

BUT SO PRESENTED

AS ME

I LET IT GO

LONG AGO

AND I CARRY ON

AND GO ON

AND ON

AND DESPITE

HOW I AM TREATED

I REFUSE

TO GO TO THAT

LEVEL

OVER AND OVER

AGAIN

AND AGAIN

I AM A BETTER

PERSON

THAN THOSE

THAT SURROUND ME

AND

WALK AWAY

FROM IT

I CALL OUT

TO THOSE I

BELIEVE IN

TO GIVE ME

STRENGTH

AND COURAGE

AND THAT

ONE DAY

THE TRUTH

WILL BE DONE

I ASKED FOR

A FRIEND

TO SEND A LETTER

AND

FIND THAT

THERE HASN’T

BEEN ANYONE

AROUND

TO CONSIDER

THAT

I AM SURROUNDED

BY THE

ONES THAT

INTERFERED

AND REFUSE

TO LET IT GO

I KNOW

AND

WISH THINGS

WOULD HAVE

COULD HAVE

SHOULD HAVE

BEEN DIFFERENT

BUT THEY AREN’T

SO I

CONTINUE

TO DO AND BE

WHO I AM

IN ALL OF THIS

AND HOPE

ONE DAY

THAT

IT HAS A WORTHWHILE

PURPOSE

AND IF IT DOESNT

THEN

AT LEAST I WAS

AND AM

AND WILL BE

ME

I KNOW THE LIES

I HEAR THEM

ALL THE TIME

BACK AT ME

AND I AM SICK OF

IT

NO REASONS

FOR IT ALL

SO I JUST

CONTINUE

ON MY PATH

THAT HAS

BEEN LEFT

FOR ME NOW

AND KEEP

MY HEART

WHERE IT IS

AND LET THE WORLD

OF IT ALL

GO

I SO AM DONE

BEYOND DONE

I GOT MY

OWN THINGS

TO DEAL WITH

I DON’T

NEED

OTHERS AROUND

ME TO MAKE IT

WORSE

THAN IT IS

AND

SO I CONTINUE

CAUSE

ITS ALL I GOT

AS I DECIDE

THE CHOICES

WE HAVE TO MAKE

ARE WHAT

WE HAVE TO MAKE

SOMETIMES

IT IS SO BETTER

TO WALK

AWAY

AND LET

THEIR LIES

CONTINUE

TO SPILL OUT

AS THEIR

LIES

AND NOT HIT

MY WALLS

AND BREAK

BUT FALL BACK

OFF

AND REBOUND

BACK INTO

THEIR OWN

FACES

AND THEIR LIVES

FOR

ITS A BATTLE

I AM JUST

NOT WASTING

MY TIME ON

ANY MORE

I HAVE NO

TIME FOR IT

CAUSE IT

SO TRIED

TO DESTROY

THINGS THAT

WERE

SO FAR FROM

WHAT THEY

MAKE THEM OUT

TO BE

AND I TO

NOW WALK AWAY

AND MAYBE

ONE DAY

I CAN

SHOW THAT

I WAS NOT

THE ONE

TO BE

BLAMED

I WAS JUST

TRYING TO

BE THE

FRIEND

AGAIN

AND IT

GOT SO WRONGED

AND TWISTED

AND LOST

AND

I AM

SO DONE

BEYOND DONE

SOMETIMES

PEOPLE

CAN MAKE

YOU SO

WANT TO DISLIKE

ALL OF HUMANITY

AND IT TAKES

A STRONGER

BETTER

PERSON

TO NOT LET

IT DO THAT

AND REMAIN

THE ONE

WITH LOVE

UNCONDITIONALLY

AND

JUST WALK AWAY

WE ALL

HAVE TO

WALK AWAY

I HOPE

THOSE THAT

KNOW

KNOW

I AM SO BEYOND

IT ALL NOW

AND THOSE

THAT LOVE

THEIR LIES

AND DARKNESS

WILL SO

GET THEIRS

IN THE END

OF EVERYTHING

AND THOSE

THAT HAVE BEEN

LIKE ME

DONE IN BY THE

LIES

WILL CONTINUE

TO GO FORWARD

AND BEYOND

IT

AND LET

THEM LAY IN

THEIR OWN

DESTRUCTION

AND

THE REST OF US

WILL BE ON

THE OTHERSIDE

OF IT

AND LOOK BACK

AND SAY

ITS SO NOT

WORTH

FIGHTING

WHERE

NO ONE

LISTENS

SO

NOW

I CARRY ON

AS

ITS WHAT I CAN DO

THE BEST I CAN

AND

NOT LET

ALL THE LIES

CONTINUE

TO TEAR ME DOWN

I AM SO

OVER IT

WAS OVER IT

LONG AGO

AND

I AM ANGRY BEYOND

ANGRY

BUT IT IS WHAT

IT IS

SO I CARRY ON

AND KNOW

THAT WHAT

WAS A GOOD THING

WAS DESTROYED

BY OTHERS

FOOLISHNESS

AND

ITS DONE

I TRY MY BEST

TO DO WHAT

I DO

AND LOVE

TO DO

AND BE

AND

ONE DAY LOOK

BACK

AND THOSE

THAT DONE THIS

OVER AND OVER

WILL BE

THE LOSERS

IN THE END

AND I WILL BE

ABOVE IT ALL

AND I WON’T LAUGH

LIKE THEY DO

CAUSE

I WILL KNOW

AND THEN

THEY WILL KNOW

AND IT

WILL BE

OVER

AND SAID

AND DONE.

I HOPE

THOSE

THAT WERE

IN IT TOO

KNOW

THAT I KNOW

AND ITS OK

ITS SO OK

BUT MAYBE

ONE DAY

THEY WILL KNOW

TOO

AND IT WILL

ALL BE SAID

AND DONE

AND WE

ALL CAN

BE AS WE ARE

AND THAT IS ALL

WE ARE

ALL OUT HERE

SURVIVING

IN OUR OWN

WAYS

AND I WILL

LOVE ALWAYS

AS IT SHOULD HAVE

BEEN

FRIENDS

AND NOTHING

MORE OR LESS

BUT WHAT

WAS NOT TO BE

IS LONG LONG

GONE

AND

I AM JUST ME

TO CARRY ON

IN MY WAY

NOW

THE BEST I CAN

SO TO THOSE

THIEVES

AND LIARS

THAT

STOLE

SO MUCH

KEEP GOING

KEEP ON GOING

CAUSE

I AM DONE
