year of hope

seven days into the year of hope
already pulled to end o’ my rope
livin’ large in valley of fear
welcome to a big fat new year

so many going under the knife
tryin’ to outlast the game called life
today’s pain, sufferin’, sorrow
mangled flesh, lessons for tomorrow

nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide
too many bad options to decide
done with you; cry to your mama
finished with the mess of drama

walkin’ away from the dance
beggin’ for a second chance
this time, think I’ll get it right
this time, learn to see the light
