It is 3:46 and I'm sitting in the bathroom
"How did I get here."
I am Trying to piece together
The subtle twists and turns
Of a life that flows from above
To us here below.

When I look too far back I get sad
I feel weak
And am drawn back into old thoughts
And habits
That just don't break that easily
And they tell us
We need to move on and forget
And I did that
And it's killing me;
Every part of our history
Is a part of you and me
You can't forget the story
Because then how can you be?
How do you grow up and out
Of the past you've lived in
And the corrupted vision of life
That the media
And our families and peers try to teach us
Do you see what I'm saying?

This is cathartic
Every decision is the decision before the next
It is the penultimate step
Before the finale.
When we forget where we come from
We'll just keep going back
And wonder
"How did we get here?"
