Intertwine

Unfortunately, it all happens at once
So caught up in the days that we forget about the months
Years fly, tears cried, and here’s why
Because we never let love live, we never liked fears die
We let the wrong things prosper or should I say fester
On top of the world, but still underneath the pressure
Riding the waves of the emotions that drown us
Feeling disconnected from everyone around us
They crown us, but don’t teach us how to rule
Without a kingdom, a throne is as good as the stool
We get so little when we give so much
And keep straight faces when they say keep in touch
When we can barely keep in touch with ourselves
Somehow we become accustomed to the sound of the bells
Ringing every hour, making the time that’s passed
Trying to remember the first as we search for the last
But patience is a virtue that a lot of us lack
And blame is a burden that a lot of us pack
So when life gets off track it’s up to us to find a course
In the end, we find out were all drawing from the same source
An infinite, omnipotent power that’s beyond us
The creator and author of all of our different genres
Your story may be nothing like mine
But there’s always a reason wherever they INTERTWINE
