Jaded boy where did you go?
Did you lose part of your soul?
Did you find your self-control?
Did you get to ride life slow?

Saddened boy, were your cries loud?
Did you willy nilly vows?
Did you bury tears in clouds?
Did you entertain sad crowds?

Jilted boy did you sing songs?
After seeing you were wrong?
Ever after was prolonged,
haunting spirits felt so strong.

Graceful beauty always missed,
peaceful essence formed your kiss.
I repaid you with both fists,
now my penance lives with this.

Remember how hard you prayed,
regret mistakes ego made,
now accept the part I played,
eternal remorse cascade.

Never wonder how I am,
I am stuck in my own jam,
live happy create grand slams,
lion hearts can live in lambs.
