Maya Hanson (mye3)


A Mission On This Earth


I had a feeling you were something different
Way back then
And I crossed the line I'd long to say
I didn't
Ever
Cross

Because your love
Pulled me apart
It found the inner part of me
longing to get out…
The angel
In
Me

I know now
There was
No other side to you
No hidden shadow in my hands
You showed me all
There
Was

I know it was my fault
It's not you
Or them
And I don't even know you anymore
But there's
No one else to blame,
I'm stuck with this burden
For
Life

You were my last words
Last hope, last wish, last plea
And I can't help thinking
You were my Achilles heel
The straw that broke the camel's back
As he carried
It
Home

I knew you were not
Everything I wished for
As you searched me to find me
A shadow was hiding after all
I have a mission
On this earth…
To stay away
From
You

I used to know you were trouble
Now I know you were
More than I wished for
A dream as I followed your footprints
And I have a mission
On this earth…
To find
You
Again

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
