The Pits

Is your path to perfection
Lined with gilded mirrors?
Do you only cry
Glittering, glorious tears?

You have me frantically fighting
Always wondering why I’m lost
You’re adroit at gas-lighting
I found, at great cost.

I’m verklempt within my shell.
Steeped and saturated in your lies
There’s no telling how far I fell
Or if anyone can hear my cries

I’ll procrastinate no longer.
I will not bow down and be quiet
I won’t put off getting stronger
I’m climbing out from this crude pit

From the hands which held me down
Gripping my dreams with desperation
To planting my feet on solid ground
Comes the taste of sweet vindication.

So climb with me; rise with me
To the very top we’ll soar
We’ll show the world the irony
Of greedily keeping score

It will take our whole, loving hearts
To face a world of hypocrites
But, we’ve faced worse in the dark
Of those stifling, oppressive pits.
