Lost Brick


Take a brick out
every single day
soon the house
begins to sway
self-destruction
is the same way

We fool ourselves
to think we are
getting away with
too much of this
not enough of that
squandering our lives
harming our bodies
burning our souls

Tomorrow our vow to change
is forgotten as we continue
refusing to listen
to that inner voice
its wisdom ignored
