The Other Side

Written by: Michael Domaracki

THE OTHER SIDE 

A PART OF MY LIFE WILL BE COMING TO AN END
WHETHER A CHAPTER OR A VERSE
EITHER FOR THE BETTER OR FOR THE WORSE
IT’S REALLY HARD TO SAY IN THE STATE I’M IN
I’M SQUEEZING THROUGH THIS TUNNEL
AND THOUGH I’M SURE I SEE A LIGHT
I REALIZE EACH DAY IS SO FULL OF CLICHÉ
I’M UNSURE OF WHAT AWAITS ME …
ON THE OTHER SIDE
I TRY TO PIECE TOGETHER ALL OF THE PARTS
THAT BROKE FREE IN THE WRECKAGE
WHAT RESEMBLANCE DOES THIS HAVE OF ME
THE MAN THAT I THOUGHT I ONCE WAS?
OVERCOME THE HEAVY RAIN
TO BE CONFRONTED BY THE DARKEST DAY
IS THERE A WAY FOR ME TO ERASE THE STAIN
OR A BETTER WAY FOR ME TO PRAY…
I’M SQUEEZING THROUGH THIS TUNNEL 
AND THOUGH I’M SURE I SEE A LIGHT
EVERYDAY IS ANOTHER CLICHÉ
AND I’M UNSURE OF WHAT AWAITS ME…, ON THE OTHER SIDE
