When the walls come crashing down
This day I awaken
A feeling overwhelms me
A change is in the air
The past comes rushing back into my life
You never realize how much you try to put it all behind you
Until one day it is all beside you
A niece or two who’ve been abused
And are now looking to live with you
An emotionally distressed former colleague calls you up out of the blue
And apologizes for all their past sins, what are you to do?
Another colleague re appears bringing hope and good wishes with cheer
The pile of work on your desk from weeks ago
Suddenly there is nothing but the feeling of the walls crashing down around you
Where can we go?
Where can we hide?
Is it worth it to disappear?
For it seems that no matter what
We do, good or bad
Life always comes back to haunt us
