I hold in my hand
Just a little piece
Of something wonderful.
While everything else
Hangs by a thread
I know I have this little piece
Of something amazing.
A shell of the person I was before
With a daunting reminder of what all this is for
Time spent wasted trying to make everyone sane.
Memories, and hardly any are good
Was hoping I wasn’t crazy, just misunderstood
Now I’m really fine with who I am.
I’ve only ever truly wanted peace
A life not spoiled by what everyone could fleece
Somehow I got the short end of that stick.
Born by two drunks too busy to care
Left me blissfully unaware
Of the cost of nobody wanting the child that was me.
Today I have a solid rock
He’ll never ever take a walk
I’m glad to say I finally have that now.
Something wonderful that I can treasure
A love that you just cannot measure
Beats all the asses that ever walked out of my life.
Tonight I’ll sleep in my nice warm bed
With thoughts of him all in my head
As life has finally turned around for me at last.
