acid 6

dropped a tab
didn’t work, then i
fell on my face

i woke up on some clouds
looking down, i
saw a scary fate

i saw the face
of a scary boy, i
think that he was 8

he had a mirror
and he saw his father,
a man he never knew

he grew up into the person that he
thought he had to grow into


what father will, father won’t
what father did, father don’t

what father do
isn’t you,
what father did
reflects on him

what father won’t
live for his kid?
what father don’t
live for his kid?

father dead
father slew
father hues of greens and blues
father fell
father fall

mirror mirror on the wall
pull it down, smash it up
go look now, you look like us
broken pieces to pick up

mirror mirror, mirrors lie
try the sky, open wide

better yet, the ocean blue
watch the waves
as they ripple your face,
what are they telling you?

every moment, every breeze
affects reflection, be at ease

then i woke up from my dream
almost fell
off my cloud
smoked some loud
winded down

think i’ll
break some mirrors
for the sound
