Flesh & Bone

Come hell or high water
I’m obedient to the coming of age
feeling life slip away
strength becoming less certain
determination in question

Backhanded attack on my nerve
maybe I’ve seen all I deserve
failing to live up to my promise
the finish line beyond my reach
marking the approach of doom

You win some, you lose some
and sometimes you compromise
dying to make a difference
leaving more questions than answers
unreasonable products of a mind
trapped in mortal flesh
