    Fallen, hurt, dejected, defenseless
    I cried for help
    needing a hand
    for healing, comfort, and support
    I turned to mama
    to do the things necessary
    and post pain she said

    Its all better now

    I stumble along in life
    traveling at the speed of ignorance
    on a collision course with disappointment
    bumping my heart on the worlds
    disastrous disposition
    and now I'm needing consolation
    that my mama can't muster with
    her bionic will nor do I get to hear

    Its all better now

    I manage this existence
    with the temporary medication
    of dreams and anticipation
    but my visions of freedom and equality
    seem to be lost in the red tape
    of money and power
    and I have to look to my father
    for the administration of the
    poetic salve that says

    Its all better now

    Its time to navigate to a higher place
    through understanding, paitence, and kindness
    where the injustice of conplacency
    is replaced with the unselfishness of honesty
    in a time called eternity
    when i sit next to my father
    and know the truthfulness of

    Its all better now
