A ladder to the moon

image

Roll a dice or flip a coin,
Taste the bullet then smile for the agony,
Still gambling with choices
Not sure if its death or life you want
Though  you want to live for another day
But just stuck on the mid-line,with no hope for a  second chance.

Hope feels like a myth in a bed time story,
That you want to bury it in the moon dust
Million miles away ,
A step onto the ladder to the moon
Is what you wait to make
’cause you stopped chasing after the dark.

A ladder to the moon,
To climb through tomorrow,
To chase after rainbows
With colors that patch smiles at sunrise,
Just to burn another day away
Off the pages of your regrets and indebted promises.

A ladder to the moon,
To climb high above the sunsets
And sift through the weary darkness.
