Before You Even Care

In the morning when the heat makes the frost rise as steam
I’m going to open that door and breathe in every last drop of freshness -
I’ve waited so long to exhale that all of it will taste that so much sweeter
In the morning I’m going to pick up the bag I packed tonight,
Walk out through the door and never look back
You had your chances, all of you, to make a difference,
But I can no longer stand the stale seedy smell of fear
In the morning, I’ll be so far down that long road before you even care.
