"seventeen" may 28, 2010

i think this is a good way to let life go
letting loose all while climbing through my window
summer sun & blades of grass pricking my skin
smoothing flower petals on my fingertips
i’m killing all the time i have left to kill
then sweet seventeen trips falling down the hill
bumps & bruises to the bottom laid paralyzed
thanking God then to myself, “what if i died?”
falling asleep then would i sink through the dirt?
hanging out & getting friendly with the worms
locked up in darkness with silence & no air
resting with the dead, Hell itself wouldn’t care
or would i sink upside down off to the clouds?
flying through what would make my quiet heart pound
soft as whispers i can hear what people pray
needs, wishes, dreams to Heaven they make their way
if seventeen was the end what would i do?
forgive? live it up? say how i feel to you?
i already forgive like i’m forgiven..
& i already live the life worth livin..
but to say how i feel when my heart can’t speak?
the mountain in front of me, this is the peak
& then a thousand butterflies exploded
but seventeen can’t die without you knowing
in a place with the wrong guys, i’m glad you came
but to live so far away, it’s quite a shame
but that’s why i thank God who gave me patience
& a heart only to myself that makes sense
all in all, just friends or more, we get along
think ’what’s meant to be? what should be?’ & come on
you can take your time getting it back to me
i have a year to win you through seventeen:)
