Too Late

by Tony P.

It was too late when learned that life wasn't fair
Even then I learned that fair and unfair was simply a dream
A dream or better yet a difference of opinion
To make and bend it to satisfy our own self esteem

Self esteem being the thing that we think we are
Too late I learned that it was just a word
A word which truly has no significant meaning
Which leads to insanity or the corrupting of you

Too late I learned that material things and worldly possessions create
More troubles and pains because they can consume and blind your sight
A sight that blinds you to the beauty in this world
For time is short and no one knows when their time may come

Too late I learned that love is fleeting and maybe non existing
Maybe I pushed it away or needed it more than it needed me
But nevertheless it appeared and it vanished like a puff of air
I could feel its presences but when I blinked it was no longer there

Too late I learned that just existing or getting by didn't mean a thing
Cause I concentrated too hard on overcoming obstacles
With pride being my guide and stubbornness being my rule
Too late I learned that hard I became turning from true friends
Accepting enemies cause of the challenge to see if they were stronger
Stronger than me was the thrill I sought relishing when I won
Too late I learned that the dark side of me had finally tricked me
