shame.

I’m an opportunity,

And I knock so softly.
Sometimes I get loud
When I wish everybody’d just get off me.
So many players you’d think I was a ball game.
It’s every man for himself.
There are no teammates.

This life gets lonely
When everybody wants something.
They’ll smile up in your face,
But they’ll get theirs eventually,
And I hope I’m there.

Surrounded by familiar faces with no names.
None of them know me
Or want to share my pain.
They only wish to bask in my light
Then fade away.

To win my love,
To them a game,
To watch me live my life in vain.
When all is done
And the good fades away
They’ll get theirs eventually,
And I hope I’m there.

“Eventually” by p!nk

Respond to shame.

Fire away!
