Thinking Ahead

Consequences possible,

Thoughts freeze you in place.

Consequences possible,

Others steal your space.

The grass is no longer greener,

When we look on the other side.

The grass is no longer greener,

We've grown content to stand-by.

Consequences possible,

Our work stays undone.

Consequences possible,

The weight makes us none.

Voices strangled,

They gasp for air.

Choices strangled,

Because we don't dare.

Consequences possible,

Before we've been bled.

Consequences possible,

Our voice fills with dread.

Life too long,

must make mistake never.

What we do now,

need be perfect forever.

Consequences possible,

A message we repeat.

Consequences possible,

Don't dare leave your seat!
