kokopelle: Frank n Furter (frank_n_furter)
“Fool of My Life” is loosely based on a quote from Shawshank Redemption: “Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.” Hope is problematic, but as the last stanza expresses, it is better than the alternatives.


Fool of My Life

Welcome hope, fool of my life
companion of the good times
I wonder if I truly know your ways
when the shadows are banished forth
there is danger in faith’s longing
expressing what could should be
when the glow is too much
the hazards are rarely seen.

Enemies be gone with a friend like this
companion till the last of my days
luring me to turn to the light
when madness waits in the delight
friend to those with lofty dreams
fiend when they turn to nightmare’s realm
quick to offer the helping hand
still waited after a millennium’s time
pitfalls between the forest glades
bear traps sprung when least expected
walking cliffs to gaze at the sky
may lead to step that is the last.

Literally ending my time on earth
some say this would be the way to go
with all this said, friend by my side
hold my hand, show me the light
the darkness holds no better fruit
theirs is always bitter to the bite
yours will sustain me as I partake
the fool’s journey till end of days.
