Nothing’s to blame

You can’t always blame someone for the things that happen.
Sometimes, the greatest catastrophes are a result of the misfortunate union of a bad time with the wrong place.
But you can’t blame someone for the luck they are distributed, good or bad. Nobody would intentionally want anything bad to happen to them so it’s silly to think that they’d be at fault for it.

We never leave out house expecting of being stabbed while walking alone on the street in broad daylight or kidnapped while standing outside a coffees shop, if we lived trying to prophesize all our misfortunes we’d all be paranoid schizophrenics.
Which is why, we all start our day with a layout of the positive version of how we would like to spend it.

This doesn’t make us stupid, ignorant, naive or worthy of being blamed for an unforeseen attack, it just makes us human.

You can’t expect to live safely without being extra careful; the worlds too rotten a place.
You can’t expect to live blissfully while being extra careful; the world is too rotten a place.

Waves.

A wave so high that pulls you down so low
somewhere in between you lose your hope

You try and fight it but the rides too strong
the wrong feels right and the right seems wrong

It’s so intimidating; not knowing what comes next
each time it feels new even though you’re reading the same text

The force throws you up and then soon brings you crashing down
and among all the confusion you lose your sane crown

Everyday feels like a battle that nobody seems to understand
but you know it’s a force greater than you, something oh so grand

They can’t imagine what it’d feel like having these waves pull your strings
they can’t sympathize with what a life like this brings

But you know the number of tears you’ve shed can fill the deepest ocean
and how the times it’s tossed you up high has caused only commotion

How can anyone know what it feels like when you can’t control how you feel
to some it’s a joke, to some it’s no big deal

But it governs your life, it pins you down everyday
makes you grovel in the shadows and then shines bright lights in your way

So be strong and keep in touch, show it down once more
the waves will keep on coming and soon you’ll drift ashore.
