Kublai Khan Still Here

Something on my side

Built me up

And gave me pride

Helped me cope

Helped me survive

A choice in life

Helped me define

Myself in time

Of both body and mind

How you live is

Your choice

I hold this close

To me

I know its hard enough as it is

Trying to motion through every day bullshit

Growing up fast

Seeing my

Mother fall helplessly victim to

Substance abuse

Fuck

If I’ll ever become that

A better life better chance

Better plan

Still learning

Still listening

Still searching

For my myself

I know it’s hard enough as it is

Trying to motion through every day bullshit

I know it’s hard enough as it is

Trying to motion through every day bullshit

This is for us, the few left

The ones still standing. Fuck what they think

Still here. Still clean.

For Susan Griffith, eating pills

My brother Shawn, a drunk driver killed

In this life

My choice remains the same

Forever unchanged
