Steel life

Stainless steel greets the opening of my tomb . . .

my solace . . .

my haven

My resolve fades

My time to release . . .

once again I'm in this box

I kick the wall and allow tears to caress my face

When the doors open I pull myself together and find my car

I’d like to know why but God won’t tell me . . .

not now . . .

not on this earth . . .

And someday it won’t matter

I know I’m strong enough

I have no choice to be anything else

Tonight I tell my children

When morning comes with a jolt of reality from a sweet dream

I once again will stand in front of the steel doors

I allow not one tear after the first night when we both let them flow
