When the world falls apart

Where do you turn 
When the world has fallen apart 
When you are so lost 
You don't believe your worth being found 
The thought of God makes your heart pound 
And you begin to run 
Run back to the comfortable place
Where each day you wake up with another face 
Hating your life and this place
But when the light comes to close 
You run... Just to watch your world fall apart 
Something you have always known 
When the pieces are broken 
They can be easily handled 
Like a night with only a candle
Never being able to see the demons
That surround you
When the pieces slowly come together 
You realize what your past made me sether 
How much this world has taken 
And the decisions you never should have maken 
So when my world falls apart 
And I am alone 
I remember this is all I've ever known 
This time the light came too close 
I swore I wouldn't run 
 But A few steps back came all too naturally 
And as the darkness comforted me 
The light burnt my soul branding me with the memories of peace
Reminding me life doesn't need to be shattered to be fixed 
And improvement is the hardest risk 
Like waking up from an endless dream 
My eyes snap open.
And I begin to walk over shatter glass
From broken memories of the past
As the pieces dig into my skin and blood begins to flow
I realize the past is only skin deep and its time to let it go 
For shattered pieces of a broken life
Will eventually pass as I walk closer to the light 
And the pain of yesterday 
Will be remember as if it was someone else's life 
For once I know I was always strong enough to win this fight 
And the past was hard only because I had no future 
So when the world falls apart look ahead
Because the light will come again
And remember the darkness not as you see
With the candle of the demons and forgotten memories
But as it truly is... A place of eternal darkness 
Where no one can go and no one ever wants to be
