I don’t often write happy go lucky poems. I mostly write as a method of catharsis, to get out the complicated suffocating emotions swirling in my head & heart. Music has also been a great gift for me over the years to cope with the pain and loss.
This song, Hurt, is a cover song, but Cash does it best (in my opinion). The video is powerful. It portrays his roller coaster life, regretted choices, and how all that money & fame can’t undo the hurt. The line that gets me is at the end: “If I could start again, a million miles away, I would keep myself, I would find a way.”
It reminds me sadly, of my mom. She could have had it all…world trips, fun with family & friends, growing old gracefully at her majestic lake home with her grand kids playing around her. But, her choices took all that away.
I can only hope now, that God has a better plan.
In and out
Of the traps you
On old faces,
They got you
In the end
