Addressing False Barriers

by animalworkss

I’m done wastin’ my wishes
On stale ale and kisses
Levied against my own purpose and cry

Left cold and alone
More times than I know
Snacking away on delusions, stopped by

When will I learn
That I get what I’ve earned,
Secretly wanting my dreams yet to die?

Then life would make sense,
Having run past the fence
Which ferments the captive-held sky
