Steemit Open Mic Week 98 – Unseen (The Good Fight) – Original
This is a truly vulnerable share – one of my most candid songs to date.
It's brand new, and a bit of a departure for me in that...I generally end with some kind of hopeful, uplifting sentiment. That just didn't happen with this one. It's simply my raw truth...
I keep typing sentences, then erasing them; straining to pen some deeper explanation. Perhaps...I should just let the song speak for itself.
From my heart to yours – thank you for listening.
Unseen (The Good Fight)
something ancient and unkind
like the gravity of a black hole
it's been drawing me in all my life
slowly losing my light
but still...tryin' to burn bright
the tears of a thousand lifetimes
like a riptide, unseen
it's been pullin' me astray all my life
while the current keeps getting stronger
I'm just tryin' not to drown
throwing punches with the shadows
flailing against invisible things
weakened by these unseen battles
broken and pinned to the ground
I'm just tryin' not to tap out
but I'm still tryin' so hard to be alright
so – please – don't give up on me yet
'cause I promise – I'm fighting the good fight
@verbal-d, @meno & @pfunk for all you do. ~
