    Monsters and Maybes

    Discription is a subtle way
    to write my bitterness away
    To share what you have no doubt known
    Cause I have mine, you have your own

    I'm not unlike a dog with rabies
    My monsters roar but fear my maybes
    I'm learning as my angels flee
    I've chased away those close to me

    As time winds down and crossroads cross
    A dim light finds me all but lost
    I've too much strength to fall apart
    Yet little left to call a heart

    While searching for the reasons why
    My father died and I couldn't cry
    I'll wait until the very day these
    Monsters come and kill my maybes
