It's never too late

An ambient buzz
A parading noise
In this city
Slowing quickly
----------
A ricochet calls
Bouncing through walls
This mother
Helplessly waiting
----------
A smell of ammonia
Sounds from a stereo
This child
Can’t sit still
----------
Drives her hysteria
Her heart so precarious
Of uncertainty
And what is to come
----------
The sun sets silently
Her mind thinking violently
Of what she will do
What she will do
-----------
It’s never too late
To make them relate
See a child
Make him go
-----------
How did this happen
The pieces overlapping
And it collapses
Is it too late
-----------
Her chains are heavy
But she thinks she is ready
To move her mountains
Leave this time
------------
The floor is cold
Glimmers of old
Footsteps crack
She hears the steps
----------
It’s never too late
To plan an escape
But then it begins
The chase from behind
----------
Cannot hide
Or make pain subside
Is it late this time
This child runs
-----------
Through dirty streets
She let him keep
The vision of her hand
It is gone
----------
This child has run
She didn’t think it’d come
Her jewel is gone
But it’s never too late
