I was confronted with a little box today.
Oddly, it asked for the story of my life.
It made me pause to think and consider what it has been.
And with that box, i wanted to share in my heart what felt right.
Be as it may, what went in was a product emptied of feeling by my mind.
And so i lay into this what my heart so hungrily wanted to say...
hardships and roads less taken are the reason for what i am today.
so much pain endured makes me long for what i was never given.
i wish i could erase away all that has held my needs at bay.
could you imagine being able to change your past upon your command?
so many things changed would infest greed and lead all to sinning.
but life is a compromise and you have to live with what wasn't planned.
this life of hardship has granted me something that most will never know
a sight of value and meaning in life which i must soon accept to find,
to give lead for those to follow so others will find their direction to go
that little magical box could conjure up all sorts of thoughts it seems
but if could only write one thing in that box for all of time, i'd write your love with mine;
it would be you sweet as toppings on cream, forever in my life and always in my dreams...
