The most magnanimous proposal came from the mayor
The hefty one you always see seated in a chair
He said he was happy I could show up
Then handed me a tainted cup.
Knowing there was no wine for the feast
Decisions were made to overthrow the beast.
Concocted in a brilliant design
We hid many on the floor
Because if there is one thing you need to know
They never look down.
When I was conceived I was given a light
Assured it would never go out
No matter what.
I was to use this light to guide my path
To find my way.
I was assured people would deny it
They would ridicule it
Even try to steal it from me
But nobody can take it
It is mine.
Just as spoken
It was ridiculed
There were times
I even doubted it myself.
But when I looked deep inside myself
There it was
Lighter than ever.
A bitter plate of something soft became the orchestra I danced to
There was no tune but that we already knew.
Silence took the atmosphere and spun the entire ordeal around
I searched to find the truth in lies, but nothing could be found.
Softly we put together a life
Suitable for someone like you
It had just enough trials
To keep you interested
But not too much
To overwhelm you.
Somewhere in this universe
Is exactly in the middle
Of heaven and hell
You are standing in it.
Your choice is made
With the choices you make
In your life.
