In Plain Sight

I was living in a world

where I was fooling myself

believing everything was

grand including life itself.

Then reality came along

to make me look again

to show an unwanted answer

that was causing pain.

If left to my own devices

I might have managed

but there was too many

others that I had damaged.

Unable to honour

all my responsibilities,

I realised I had become

their biggest liability.

Holding them back and

stemming their flow,

preventing them from

going where they needed to go.

I let them off their leash

which I had held tight

and now they can see that

their future is in plain sight.

  1. Stavo vivendo in un mondo

    dove mi stavo prendendo in giro

    credendo che tutto fosse

    grande compresa la vita stessa.

    Poi la realtà è arrivata

    per farmi guardare di nuovo

    per mostrare una risposta indesiderata

    quello stava causando dolore.

    Se lasciato ai miei dispositivi personali

    Potrei essere riuscito

    ma ce n’erano troppi

    altri che avevo danneggiato.

    Incapace di onorare

    tutte le mie responsabilità,

    Mi resi conto che ero diventato

    la loro più grande responsabilità.

    Tenendoli indietro e

    arrestando il loro flusso,

    impedendoli di

    andando dove dovevano andare.

    Li ho lasciati al guinzaglio

    che avevo tenuto stretto

    e ora possono vederlo

    il loro futuro è in bella vista.
