conquer then divide

living in the shadow of a family
of a friend
you’re too afraid to move ahead
it’s easier to pretend
that dad is gonna come home
that mom is gonna mend
as winter covers all that breaths
find shelter and release

but hope is in the water
in the stories that we read
it comes up from the gutter
leaves us weeping to be seen

give me some acknowledgement
do you hear the words i say?
you grieve with me
you breathe with me
we’re getting through the day

love it is a battle
it can rob you of your pride
you choose a path i’ll follow
and we’ll conquer then divide
conquer then divide
