the abyss

I’m worried for you my friend
Please don’t think me pompous
But you must be aware
Surely you have noticed
The way others stop and stare
Wondering if you’ll join us.

Do you think you’ll live forever?
Or are you paralyzed by fear
Of making the wrong decision
I understand, I swear
It’s true you need discretion
But you can’t just sit here

Always, life has motion
Only the dead lie still
Pick a path, see where it leads
Try to climb that hill
Others will not meet your needs
They’ve other mouths to fill

Life’s not easy, nor fair
But If you never try
You find yourself in a dark abyss
From the darkest depths, you’ll cry
“I’ve done nothing to deserve this!”
And I will just reply
“You’ve done nothing, that’s why you deserve it.”
