For Sale

I'm selling my dreams and hopes to another

Because I'm an addict living in a timeline

where faith is a drug being sold on the pulpit

So it's easy for me to bite my tongue to the truth

yet my actions speak of a man who's unhappy

about how the sun's light burns the skin

instead of kissing it brightly

how stars appear to flicker instead of shining

and how the earth keeps feeding on our prayers.

 

I'm selling my love to the highest bidder

Because I'm an addict living in a timeline

where hurt follows whenever I give love out

for free. Even if I'm giving it out to me.

 

I'm selling my knowledge to the world

Because I'm an addict living in a timeline

where information is a currency, but it's not

strong enough to buy truth to see that

the wisdom buried within the universe

is as mysterious and infinite as its creator.

 

I am selling self

Because I'm an addict who needs help

to finance his journey to another realm

Please who will make the purchase?
