There’s a persistent pain eating away at my heart
Memories of what was… tearing me apart
How can I smile after all I have seen?
How can I dance when I am in this machine?
There’s a repetition chipping away at my soul
Fighting for the right to be complete and whole
How can I sing when sorrow weighs heavy on my chest?
I tried giving you my absolute best
There’s a fight between my spirit and mind
I need more than a temporary sign
I need more than this internal grief
I need waters to flow in order to gain relief
There is a fire brewing underneath these twigs and sticks
Illuminating all the shames and dirty tricks
Revitalizing purpose and desire
Learning to submit to someone much higher
How can I fly with wings of distortion?
How can I rebirth this emotional abortion
Numbness lasts for parts of this season
When all one knows has committed treason
Questions rose during battle and retaliation
Nights under stars are born inspirations
It’s as Sweet as honey in its final hour
Only pure love can bring forth life, restoration and power.
