    The goal is to invoke the thought process​

    How it turns
    Unravels
    You control the rest

    Processes seem to always stand in the way?
    Of you making a goal a reality
    As you try each day

    To reach a level
    That can ease the pain

    Others injecting the influence
    They tarnish the name

    All you have is the word you give
    Why do some people make it hard to live?

    It seems they latch on to your dreams
    Not having their own
    Just let me give
    All I have to offer never seems enough

    A break from the normal
    Unsavory and tough

    You make this so hard for me
    You block my progress
    I can no longer see

    The reason
    I started
    In a direction
    I’m lost

    Turn around
    Write it down
    You say of course

    That would remind me of the things I need
    How to approach this situation
    Get the help I need

    Seems never close at hand
    Always to far to come
    In time to rescue me from pain and harm

    Woe to the distractions that get in the way.
    I mean, even when you've changed the people, places,
    and things, theres always other people, places, and
    things to get in your way.

    this poem is an american reality

    for anyone who has lived, felt and been burned
    while only trying to do the right thing
    and you keep trying to do the right thing
    that's where the pain comes from

    you know life is really like that show survivor

    we're together but every man for themself

    that's where the craze and pain comes in

    well written man i felt you
