the lesson has been learned
we’ll take the spring over this fall
and when it’s not getting better,
it’s time to grow older.
never forgetting, anything
we try to hold on to why it began
will we survive through this crush
or will we lose touch,
lose sight and just give in.
please don’t give in
ready or not
the years will p*ss
will you know what to do
when it sneaks up on you
they tell you don’t pretend
tell them why it began
don’t expect them to understand
but expect to tell it all again.
