The Easy Way

By Lee   

When you feel the pain
the only thing to gain
is that which you burn
and that which you restrain.

The animal in its cage
knows it´ll never be free
yet somehow will see
the end of the everly stage.

It´s sickening that you and I
both have scary dreams
when we don´t even want to talk about ´em,
yet we yell and scream.

That´s the moment you realize
you don´t know how to penalize
nor do you know how to see the lies
you unconsciously, despicably spout.

You only want the easy way out...
Now what is to gain?
What is this pain
and why did you leave this stain?

A buddy of mine, I feel, is always on life´s edge, which he undoubtedly pushes himself towards life and life again through his actions that affect not only him but others around him which he is purposely ignorant towards. I write this to remind myself to learn from him in what not to do so I can make it through life in a better manner than I had been before.
