Chasing Pavements 

I have been chasing pavements over the last two weeks Trying to step on the right stones
Trying to complete the perfect hop scotch 

Trying to balance on the curb 

I know it sounds absurd 

I am hurt and I have come back down to earth 
I release that there are dreams that cannot be and some people that I can’t see 
I am trying to be me

I have discovered that should live under the covers 

I will make it through another summer 

I will recover 
Even with your childish games 

I will remain the same 

I will maintain my inner flame

I will turn away and avoid all of blame 

For another day
