3.1.14 Counting isn’t always for Children’s Books

One more day
One more dollar
One more dreary experience
You’ve been living this for one whole year

Two lost friends
Two failed careers
Two homes you’ve had to leave
You’ve been searching for meaning for two whole years

Three trips to emerge
Three girls scared away
Three missed opportunities
You’ve been wondering about the past for three whole years

Four brothers who’ve forgotten you
Four self-help groups you don’t go to anymore
Four times you’ve had to say sorry and not mean it
You’ve been missing your soul for four years

Five times you’ve said you’d quit counting
Five times you woke up in a gutter
Five times you didn’t go far enough
It’s been five years since you thought you wouldn’t have to deal
with life again
