The First Step


Hush now dear
Restrain yourself
Nothing's clear
And nothing's well

Look at yourself
Look at yourself now...
You're not thinking straight
And you're keeping it down

You say everything's done
But everything's due
You say everything's gone
When it's not for sure
You think you know it all
Everything dissolves
When it's yet to evolve
Everything falls
When it's yet o fall
Because that's what they said
Oh, that's what you've heard
Well, that's what you will always hear
When you're looking for the easiest words

And that's the first step for you...
And it's the worse step for sure...
You've been tricked, you've been cursed
You've been taught all the empty words
Oh, and it's the first step...
The first step for you...
The first step for you...

My eyes were open....
While my mind was closed
Oh, and i was coping....
With the curse i loathed
And it sounded like the easiest road
Oh, that sounded like the easiest road...
That's what i've been told....
With a wounded soul....

Oh, that's the first step for you...
With the cursed breaths for sure...
You've been ripped by abundant thirst....
Because you've been taught all the empty words...
And that's the first step...
The first step for you....
The first step for you....
Oh....

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
