Unavoidable Roads

Only had one ear open
when the cards were talking
cause the firelight and friends
were something i could feel
and move by

to believe in
and take apart in pieces
honey, what was told
was nothing unknown
it’s been creeping through these bones
for some time now

What i can give
is a smile, friend
while knowing all the while
the space between heart beats
and the dirty bottoms of my feet
A road that’s waiting
patiently for me

So if you see
my smile’s fading
instead of lecturing
and criticizing
maybe you could hold me
maybe you could smile for me

Maybe you can smile for me
