you went back to checkers

You told me

we were playing

chess now

but you went back to checkers

Tired of keeping score

and I forgot the records

I look in the mirror and

don't know who I'm seeing

Is this a 24 year old now or

a boy

who won't

look at the reasons

I'm in a season

where I don't sleep anymore

I just stare at the clock No motivation to go

we just stuck at a stop

They say time will tell

but I took off my watch I'm a storm cloud season and

just want some peace

I'm hungering for wisdom

now all I need is a piece
