Up All Night





As I stare at the stars dotting the polluted sky 
I think of what happened before 
What could be changed to change our situation? 
Our dreams were deferred the loan company collected what was left of us 
Happiness is borrowed from sorrow 
Helping you appreciate a feeling that isn’t normally felt 
A world of despair awaits the hopeful 
But the ones that gave up claim a temporary bliss 
Till they realize that life is rewarding 
Life includes love 
Although people will display affection at your funeral 
Remember they never gave it to you living 
So fight for life 
Cause death is a bitch that can’t be tamed
