too far

too far to be angry
too far to care
too far to be disgusted
only tired
scratchy voice
when the sun is fading
this is not the way i remember
you with fire
you with anger
you with spite
you with clear eyes
you with conviction
you with strength
you with no quarter asked
you with a future
you with hope
you with arrogance
you with youth

Sweetness, all that stuff? It comes back... tempered, maybe, with the wisdom (we hope) that life brings. But it'll be back... of this, I'm certain.

But? 'Tired' will keep it all at bay... 'resigned' won't let the spark turn into a flame... so you have to rest. And once you have, finding your way again will be easier. I promise.
