Dad, tell me that story again.
The one where almost everyone lies.
The story where today’s mistakes
excuse tomorrow’s sins,
and the weight of fate’s shoulders
the blame for my iniquity
and the pain in my eyes
breaks free through
the free fall of my confusion.
The story ended somewhere over
the forest fire of burned decisions.
In other words, tell me your story.
