Something, Something

Back on the moral low ground
you might become accustomed to the sound
of those who thought they had nothing to lose
discovering that there are still dues
to be paid before getting out of here
dealing with the primal fears
that things undone will come back
to cut them down in their tracks

The demons may claw at the cage
but pray redemption with a turning page
we must be careful what we hope for
but hope for something, something more
than lost confusion and shattered nerves
hope for more than we deserve
and surrender to that higher Power
that gets us through the darkest hours.

Be ready when the page finally turns
to use whatever you have learned
hope that it will help you to know
that it is never too late to grow
