PINE CONE

thinking about moving time zones

but i know if it’s more

than a 30-minute drive home

might choke on a high loan

rack up the credit card debt

for a pine cone

might be prepared for the climb though

i’m alone quite a lot

shut the blinds and i lie low

tight hold on a typo

need to control fate

won’t enter flight mode


don’t want to make a mistake

what if they call me fake

should’ve put in more reps

i mean can’t you see what’s at stake

i bet every scrap of my self-worth

on a good take

quit and i’ll lose what i’ve chased

purpose will run away

and without it i’m spent

in a killing spree at the gate

if only i’d internalize grace

i could be saved
