embers of ashes

Mentally tired but the fire’s still burning
i’m hard wired so i feed off my yearnings
learning a new life is somewhat disconcerting
cause the life i left behind is somewhat still lurking
sometimes at night i wake up reminisce and hurting
wishing i never would have put that dirt in
but thats spoiled milk and now i find myself working
towards a better me cuz the old me wasn’t working
i use to flirt with death but now it’s life im courting
realizing that life is more important so i cherish it in small portions
see,I see the world through the eyes of an orphan
and wonder if he dreams of another life very often.
