Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Decisions we make decide our fate.
"Whirlwind" by ben johnston
Why is getting high the highest priority in my lowly life,
Why can't I get my shit tight and make Brandi my wife?
Why am I crazy in love with loving this crazy ass love,
I desire in the deepest parts of my heart to live for the Father above.
My mind swims in a cess pool of chaotic and broken thoughts,
What am I going to do when I'm living this life without my sweet baby dogs.
Fucked up things and fucked up dreams,
Scared to death of what my future will bring....
No one understands where my thoughts take me
And the fear they instill and how much they shake me.
The visions I have of dying, memories of so much lying,
Guilt has a throat grip on me and the world I keep on defying.
I hate that I say and do things that bring about so much pain,
My spirit yearns for much more as I drown in the rain.
Black sheep that was hiding so many years,
Not knowing of the life ahead full of so many tears.
How can I stay warm in a world gone cold,
The deck is stacked against me so maybe I should fold.
