SIXTEEN STORIES UP

All those lessons I learnt as a kid,

I wonder if I’m paying attention to them now,

‘Cause sixteen stories up, I can see how far I’ve come,

The view down is further than I thought,

And at times, it gets so blurry that I feel I can’t take it much longer,

I know I’ll collapse, to my death, or lose myself, in a deep black cold,

But sixteen stories up, I know more than ever to make the same mistakes again,

This time, I’ll do it without regret,

‘Cause I want the same acceptance that everybody deserves,

Even though I made a million mistakes,

It doesn’t bother me anymore,

I’ve been laughed at, hurt and scorned,

So this wouldn’t be the first of my pains,

But hopefully the last time I ever let it hurt me.
