“The Normals” or “A Psalm For The Sidelined”

It feels like the only constant is confusion the only permanence is pain

The only north star is confusion

The chaos that seems here to stay

Look at all the normals

The lattes, the restaurants

The chic cafes

My life will never be that way

Look at all they take for granted

All the things that rust

And get stripped away

They’ll never know any different

Maybe I’m too bitter to allow

For the roughened edges

I don’t know their stories

But I don’t want to hear them today

Look at all the normals

They seem so carefree

Perhaps that’s not true

But it feels that way

Look at all they take for granted

That life is for the taking

Mine has done the taking, I’ll say

It feels like the only constant is confusion the only permanence is pain

The only north star is confusion

The chaos that seems here to stay
