My Death Day


I WAS PLAYING WITH THE
HANDS OF DEATH, DANCING
WITH MY BIGGEST BET.....
WONDERING IF MY DEATH WAS
DRAWING NEAR, WITH MY
ADDICTION I HAD NO FEAR..
REPRESSED IT ALL IN THE
BACK OF MY MIND, FAR AWAY
FOR IT I DIDN'T WANT TO
FIND...
WEBBED A NET TO HOLD IT
IN..THIS TRICK IS CALLED
GATING MY FRIENDS, MINE
WASN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO
LOCK IT ALL AWAY...
SO I TURNED TO DRUGS ONE
COLD WET DAY..CAN'T GIVE
YOU A DATE, CAN'T GIVE YOU
A TIME, HELL ALL THAT I'M
STILL TRYING TO FIND....
THE DRUGS BUILT THE WALL
TO KEEP IT ALL IN..SO IT
COULDN'T HURT ME EVER AGAIN
I PLAYED WITH DEATH AND HE
CAME MY WAY...KNOCKED ON
MY DOOR SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY...
HE STOOD THERE DARK,HOODED,
AND COLD...MY SOUL TO HIM
I HAD SOLD...HE TRIED SO
HARD TO TAKE ME AWAY., BUT
SOME THING KEPT ME HERE THAT
DAY....FOR ONE REASON ALONE
TO SEND MY MESSAGE TO ALL OF
YOU...TO BE A MOM WHO'S STRONG
AND TRUE...I WATCHED AS HE
TURNED AND WALKED AWAY...MY
CHILDREN BROUGHT ME BACK
ON MY DEATH DAY...
SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY
