Life Passing by
by; trista groulx

I simply watch as life goes on
I do participate, to some extent
But I like to keep my safety net
Once I get close you allow me to fall
Each fall makes getting back up harder
I should just runaway in fear
I should never leave my world again
And each time I let someone in
Every time they just hurt me more
I cannot continue to bounce up and down
Each bounce spins me further out of control
I do not want to be hurt again
I don't know how long I can trust again
Second, third, tenth chance, same result
The same exact result each time!
So I only give one chance now
I look back from the stands as life continues
I look around and I see life
A life that I cannot have
