Survival

Found this while cleaning out my room. It’s a classic line, and I don’t think I ever shared it on here.

I realized today
I can solve all my problems
There is an easy way
No more rent, no more bills
No more “friends”
I’ve had my fill
All my problems in this life
I’ll down them all away
In the crisp chill air
Of a sunny autumn day
Eagerly I climbed the stairs
Up to my sunny throne
Up upon the roof I’d stand
All alone.

Standing on the edge
Of a cool and lonely place
I made a final jump
I took a leap of faith
Then I began to think
Of what I’d never do
I wonder if I would have jumped
If I would have knew?

Falling from the building
I felt quite alive
For the first time in my life
I wanted to survive.
