Away from Earth

Cutting my palms

As I squeeze my fists

I can't think of a struggle

Greater than this

*

To forget what you told me

And forget what you taught

Is an idea they push at me

And I constantly fought

*

But now that you're gone

Is there any other way

To possibly, maybe

Get me through the day?

*

Death is so permanent

But life seemed so long

And to think all this time

I've been so completely wrong

*

When thinking of you

I saw so much strength

Memories of our happiness

Now bring so much angst

*

How could this happen

To someone like you?

My savior, my hero,

And guardian too

*

But look at it this way

It's what the adults try to sell

That you are in Heaven

And we are in Hell

*

I guess that right now

All it really means

Is that away from Earth

You may finally rest in peace
