Constant Sorrow Final.mp3


~Constant Sorrow~


Fixed doubt constant, like a pilgrim band


One that obligates, does not change


Values itself in relation to idle variables


Solutions provided by theory, never denied


The difference between the distances from any point to let it ‘B’


With its’ standardized values whose parameters form the un - promised land


Its’ effectiveness obtrusively defined


Measured by sorrow’s ability to capture me at such a young age


Relates its’ constant velocity to my perpetual wish


Imprints an idea in my already clouded mind


Constant tears dripping have hollowed out my soul


The realm of my inner secrecy now public domain


Always in constant acceleration, always in constant retreat


I gravitate toward its’ pull, the day is the night


Inadequate fences erected against its’ unfairness, holes in the links left unguarded


I find myself sacrificing the essentials, doomed like a listing ship


With my inner voice crying, into the abyss formed by tears I leapt


Three fingers up in succession: one for sorrow; one for self-pity; the dying one for silence surmised


The impatience endured is un-godlike


Took the beaten path of sorrow, lead to where sorrow is unknown


Forgot it was often remembered as emotional strife


The abyss forms a river that enters the plains as a torrent, then a malicious stream


Enclosed by body after body of the condemned, tender for another’s pain


Held in place until the sorrow makes us wise.
