rak03252: this one...a few months old...was just re-reading it...thought i would share..


SUPPOSED TO BE©
by rak
 
it always is
what it’s not
supposed to be
nothing else
that happens
makes any sense
to me
had I really been there
did I really care
if anybody saw me
they never would
have dared
 
I danced alone
at midnight
I heard the rain
come pouring down
I watched as
rebel soldiers
marched
defiantly to town
no one saw their faces
no one
could name their names
but all the empty spaces
get filled in
just the same
 
and once upon a time
the story does begin
bathed in reels
of rolling rhyme
and saturated sin
hence
we all keep
moving on
towards
destination’s zone
 
 
is this how
it’s supposed to be
or has that flag
been flown
 
it’s always
someone else’s
fault
so good
to lay
the blame
but everyone
unlocks their vault
when it’s time
to claim the fame
 
it was never meant
to be
this way
just the way
that things
played out
and instead of
going quietly
comes the need
to scream
and shout
 
all the mutilated myths
and urban fairly tales
the wielding of the scythe
still proves
no one’s
free
from jail
 
but set loose
on a reckless course
using force
and any means
where time
can only
mark the time
and everything
between
 
I walked alone
in pre-dawn light
thru fog
that would not lift
I heard
the mournful
bullfrog croak
and leave this
parting gift
 
whatever is
supposed to be
is not
so evident
time reveals
secrets slowly
and you don’t
know where
it went
