Too my enemies, you can save your blows.
I'm already beat down, so you can quit beating a dead horse. I was shot in the head a long time ago. My bones are lying on the dessert prairie. The vultures have already picked my bones.
There's nothing left, so fly away, bird of prey.

It's trying time again,
I never quit,
in this world of grit.
I try love,
evil still does shove.
I try positive,
I live positive,
I sleep positive.
It is my guard,
like a big dog
in the yard.

Everyday is trying,
keeps my brain frying.
I feel scrambled,
in a losing game gambled.
Everyday is a grind,
pressing my mind.

From early morning get up,
it's very hard to sit up.
Once up and around,
I want to lay back down.
I sit and I think,
bring these feelings to ink.

I'm fighting a losing battle,
give me my baby rattle.
The baby kicks,
unknowingly tricks.
I know what I'm kicking at,
be better with a baseball bat.

I keep trying hard,
then I'm lying in part.
At times I get tired,
my brain gets all wired.
I just sit and wonder,
about lifes thunder.
