soul mates

If we all count the little things we try to keep from ourselves
The sad little truths of the wrongs we do and try to bury
We find that the best of us begin to fall along side the rest

If we gaze down on our perches of self-righteousness
Examine the foundations of our live's work to achieve an ideal
We see the crooked deeds that prop us up to delusional heights 1 comment

We see farthest from the truth when the truth is back behind us
A long forgotten hope to be not the best of all
Just our better selves than we were when we started
