Standing Upright

I hear they are scared of me
Afraid to approach & talk to me
First you put that blame on me
Then you try to take a hit on me

You fear I’m that crazy volcano
Ready to explode & destroy your yappity yap canoe
Burn the waters you’re sailing on
Coz I’m the intense fall of the Canyon

Unwilling to cooperate
You tell me I just operate
Simply deny to solve what you point at
With no copy or roger that

I heard so many allegations
You ran me down with accusations
I lost for a moment the sensation
So I ended up in total confusion

You wanted me to find the solution
I needed to be fixed was the conclusion
There was a huge interference in the discussion
So I left the things in shock & desperation

That night was gloomy & dark
The kick in the guts was deep & hard
It kept me awake in my thoughts
Replaying that scene was painful & odd

That scene brought me back to the senses
I went out for a walk in my 10’s
I kept asking myself the hows & the whys
My voice was heavy when I looked up at the skies

But to give up at this stage, wasn’t in my mind
My dear ones were there for me & stood by my side
The facts in my head, I started to write
To make you realize that hit wasn’t alright
So here I stand tall & upright
