foot in the grave

By molock

it's how you finish,​
 

when you play the
 

game.
 

got my crosses to
 

bear,
 

to cleanse my soul
 

today...
 

the pendulum swings,
 

as time slips away.
 

 
 

the more things change,
 

the more they stay the
 

same.
 

traveling down this winding
 

road,
 

sometimes a sinner,
 

other times a saint.
 

in between black and
 

white,
 

...living in the grey.
 

got one foot in this world,
 

the other in the grave....
 

 
 

throw myself in the fire,
 

pray for baptism by rain.
 

thought i got it right,
 

...but karma fueled the
 

flame.
 

 
 

living and dying are one
 

in the same.
 

take a breath,
 

exhale....
 

another second slips away.
 

living in the moment,
 

in a precarious way.
 

got one foot in this world,
 

the other in the grave....
