The pain-JOY Sandwich

Let this cup pass me by
That is what they cry aloud
In that turbulent state
The wall tearing apart
You will almost want to cry

There is this urgency
The hand must move with care
Sweet words are needed here
Sometimes some hard words fly
As energy is been dispensed

There is need to calm the nerve
Energy is needed 
Strange words are getting out
"I won't do this again
If you see me through this"

As though it will never end
The walls have been torn apart
A force has been dispensed
A blessing comes through the wall
A victory cry is heard.

The nerves have now been calmed
There is laughter in the air
As if it wasn't a while ago
That we heard that loud cry
"Let this cup pass me by"

Out of the moon again
There is thought about another one.
