Beat A Dead Horse
Author: Meridian Zuriel


Unearthing whatís buried.

The past is what used to be
Look at me now
And see differently
I told you
You remember what should be forgotten
Bringing up yesteryears
Trying to provoke some tears
The horse is dead
Leave it alone
Bury it
Let it be
In the words of an alligator hunter
Stop riding me
Get off my back
Making me feel bad
Oblivious to
Why Iím mad
I asked for forgiveness
I admitted my faults
I have remorse
Now back off
That dead horse
Do me a favor
Try and remember the positive
If you goní remember
ĎCause negativeís all you recall
Like I ainít
Done or said nothing good at all

Thanks Taylor

You and me both. When I was 18, it was apparent I needed to grow up. Haha. I'm still on my way to being the mature-minded person I want to be.

Sometimes when I want to say what's on my mind, I just turn to self-expression writing or music. It helps me get through and calm down.
