Take 2

I am leaving the house now.

I wanna get out.

It’s been so lonely lately,

I want a second chance.

I have been through a lot.

Life’s played it’s nasty game.

It’s bowled me out.

I want a second chance.

I am clearing out the clutter,

The chaos has rendered me deaf.

I want to be at peace.

I want a second chance.

I have a few broken bones

And terrible bruises too.

I want to clean up now

I want a second chance.

I wanted shiny panes

I got a broken window.

I am building a new house.

I want a second chance.

The ghosts of the past did visit.

They saw me shudder with fright.

Not anymore, I tell them.

I want a second chance.

I have set out on a journey,

A journey to a place called Heaven.

I won’t go wrong this time.

I will get my second chance.
