what coulda been

can you stand  

alone  

in the  
 
mud  
 
in what  
 
was  
 
us  
 
in what  
 
was  
 
what must  
 
 
 
can you hold  
 
your fight  
 
tight  
 
like the  
 
only knife  
 
 
 
but can you  
 
forgive  
 
the  
 
world  
 
for what has  
 
kept you  
 
curled  
 
 
 
when you reached  
 
for the  gun
 
birds flew  
 
into the sun  
 
and you felt you coulda won  
 
but this world got you  
 
done  
 
 
 
and my finger on a pistol  
 
my eye on the door  
 
for what coulda been  
 
more  
 
what coulda been  
 
more

but
what
for?
