Iron Throne

from by maya renfro



i tried to separate the curds from the whey
but the straw horse was same as hay

i tried to separate the good from the bad
but that was not to be had..

i tried to separate my shame from my being
oh that cancer of misgivings

i ask myself, is this worth living?
but there was a wiser one to answer this lonely son

"flung from the iron throne
i don't have to tell you
you have two hands to pick yourself up again
by the glow of the setting sun
perpetual slow motion
it seems deeds evil as these
gather like stones
to make still your heartbeat
to cool down your bloodstream
to steal your soul
that lump of coal in your throat

oh silly son
you're not the only one
to ever have fallen
so pick yourself up again
so pick yourself up again"
