I'm Always Fine

Your breath can slow
in this cold when the air mists
Sat with clenched fists
Cursing outside souls for pains brought
These scars taught us to dodge not flinch,
run or chase
Life’s more cunning blade
is self inflicted me
pacing sick
a night goes by sometimes
when I barely get to numb before the ache sets

Your chin must stay solid
In the low times
When jabs and sucker shots
Take what you’ve got….what you feel
To a basement of doubt and fear
Where breathing is forced
Walls close in
Lights that dampen

Resiliency is key
Smiling back with bloody teeth
Confront to release
know
these blows life’s thrown
Won’t topple me
My path has frayed
From these aching weights
The ghosts and time gone by
but I’m at tying knots
Watch the wrath of a man past gone
In survival mode
growling hound

Wake today in a relieved state
Seeing that mirrors eyes come back
Seeking lost time
But these lips snarl stubborn
With sharp wits slow burn
chorus is a mantra
deeply believed and repeated
“I’m always fine”
“I’m always fine”

I'm Always Fine

Artist's Description

For any time I’ve been low and feeling defeated, I’ve countered with a stubborn handling of the loathing. its not quite so much ying and yang but a learned juggle
