Hell of a Life

Hell of a Life

A Poem by LoveAlwaysJB

" Aching to the soul
Beaten to the bone 
I’m walking away from the troubles
No, don’t call me a coward 
I’m doing what’s right for me

Walking away from the goons of disaster 
They’ve got me questioning my faith 
Oh, they got me good man 
Telling me yes 
When I need the No’s to scream

I’m just doing the run around 
Back to the same old 
Same old bar and same old people 
But I’ve got the sun, moon, and the stars 
They’re telling me to shine

Because hell is hot and I’m burning up
Pain and regret in the dashboard 
Oh, wake me up from this ride
I’m going for the thrill of it all 
My values are in the back seat

Yelling at me to brake 
But this life is all I have now 
I have danger riding shot gun
And everything good for me is in my rear view mirror 
I know I should find my way home

Home to the warmness that I need 
Home to my blood
Home to my bed that loves me so
Oh, all I need is the North Star 
This is just one hell of a life for me”
