Morning Coffee biscuits
are caffeine injections for my voice
propelling me to talk about brain injury
how it changed my life and took away choice
When a bomb goes off in your head
people say "you're lucky you're not dead"
yet with all the turmoil hidden inside
I know, on that day I wish I'd died
The fear and the pain in the eyes of my family
were part and parcel of the unfolding tragedy
the constant confusion of being alive
battled to suffocate my will to survive
Now it's hard to find the right person to love
although I would and could -
because the whole damn world exists on a slant
The person I am now is simplified
and I feel for once time's on my side
I'm on a journey - no desire to regret
Just tell me please, am I there yet?
