I DIDN’T KNOW

Sometimes, there just really isn’t anything we can do to improve certain situations.


Options run out. Patience runs out.


Simply accepting the fallacy of others’ actions as well as our own is the best closure.


We cannot blame others or ourselves.


Culpability can‘t always be justly pinned. It‘s difficult to see where it lies at times.


Why point fingers, retaliate, avenge and make matters worse?


Whose fault is it truly?


Many times, we are victims of the unfavorable circumstances this disorderly world hands us.


There is too much to think through.


Eventually, we have to permit the universe take its course and allow future events to guide us.


I penned the lyrics of this song as an observation of this human condition.


May we have the wisdom to better ourselves after every failure we encounter on our trajectory.


“I DIDN’T KNOW”

VERSE 1:

I see destruction and animosity

all around me

I see how we destroy our gorgeous selves

Selfishly

I see how burdened I become at night

and in dreams

I sense my choices tarnishing the light

within me


CHORUS:

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know my choices would lead me to devastation

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know the love for myself would rust my soul to corrosion

I didn't know


VERSE 2:

I understand how I’ve betrayed myself

and those

Whom I told once I loved with all my heart

and chose

To ignore their plea when they asked for

my help

And I refused to lend a hand

and now I fall apart


REPEAT CHORUS


BRIDGE:

So I want to go back

and start over again

and search for those

I've hurt so much

and strictly silenced

By ignoring their pleas

and their desperate attempts

In retrospect

I regret


FINAL CHORUS:

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know my choices would lead me to devastation

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know the love for myself would rust my soul to corrosion

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't, I didn't know
