I’ve Tried My Best

Updated: Feb 17

I’ve tried my best to stop the wheels of time

to pray, to serve, to love, to eat

to atone, for my part of crime.

I can’t say, my love meant much success.

I was all alone and much undressed.

I was disturbed and would not egress.

Could it be that it wasn’t meant to be?

That the price of art, was my — humanity?

I tried my best to stop the wheels of time

to cough, to choke, to sweat, to urge

to avoid, my share of grime.

I can’t say, my love was blessed

I can’t say, I got it off my chest

I was troubled, and my mind was stressed

Could it be that it wasn’t meant to be?

That the price of art was my — humanity?
