Undone Soul

Undone Soul

A Poem by Meghan

Eldest daughter, undone soul, breathe deep
Listen thru the wall, hear your baby brother cry
And you'll hear your sister whispering
Say "It's scary at first but you get used to the screams
And the pleas
And when she's big enough
Someday she'll leave"

The first thing that you feel is a fit of rage
Then you realize she's gotten too cold for her tiny age
And beside the vase of roses that are wilted, you leave a page
It says goodbye

Stubborn father, saddened fool, you'll dream
Of the family man you always thought you'd be
When your first girl lost her mind at four
You tried to fight it out, but you can't do that no more
You can't no more
You let her go
And you locked the door

And she'll come back begging you to let her in
She'll come back with hope running out of her eyes
She'll come back, but you've given up

Wistful mother, let your guilty conscience die
Blame can't be placed when the truth is disguised
Since Midland Park in nintey five
You've paid, and worked, and prayed, and cried
But it's time to let your baby fly
It's no ones fault
But she's gotta try

She was the first thing in life you ever loved
With a dangerous spirit, a mind like a loaded gun
And you tried to help her often, but your love was not enough
And it's not in your hands anymore

Oh wow,
Meghan this is really lyrical like you said and I'm a sort-of songwriter myself so I tend to think in song too and I really felt a flowing rhythm here and it was very explicit and touching and a nice perspective and you said you liked catcher in the rye and I even felt a bit of that spirit in it this was fantastic
