I want to live a life of love and joy
I used to live without their precious hope
I know I said “I’m just a stupid boy”
But “stupid boy” is just a slippery slope!
Directionless, I often fuck things up
Like sailing through the night without the stars
Like putting tea into a coffee cup
I tend to try to make “my” tempest “ours”
You’re patient when you teach me of the path
And of the way to follow where it leads
I still regret the messy aftermath
Of spilling out my life with my misdeeds
You’ve shown me how to clean, and not to spill
To find the love and joy of life. I will!
