From Dust to Ashes: Diamond Eyes

Those diamonds - they shimmer anew In your forest eyes...out of the blue... Elegance and erosion collide in my cranium Leaving me a missing, numb crumb, succumbing to the feeling of numb From dust to ashes, We see flashes We see gashes Excitement excels in my mindset, Getting me an optimistic outlet Leaving behind utter regret Leaves of green sway I'm happily fading today Disappear the fear in my humbling heart, Daring to shamefully tear me all apart Desire is a blue, red and yellow flame That burns on in my cranium and you're to blame Candle-lights bled through the night, the night Flickering off and on with all of its burning might Give me a reason I need a Spring season To bring me to life To eliminate all of the strife From dust to ashes, We flicker our eyelashes It's sicker by the minute and how it lasts - taking out tribulation's tensions and its taunting trashes I'm magnified by mesmerizing memories Life is so brilliant and such a breeze at ease Cease the moment I'm heaven-sent Set aside discouragement Endorse your heart with encouragement Shy away from resentment... With epic discernment... I need determination I need His sensation I need a destination Away from my frustration Scorch away the grief that is oh so brief There, you'll find watery, radiant relief Loveliness and joy is what I lack I want that childlike happiness back I yearn for it I yearn for it I yearn for it I have learned about it But, I have been having my childish fit... It's legit that you made me feel a bit...of obedience, oh God of so much love and mercy I must admit I have been feeling lament for no apparent reason Just give me a summer season of cheer my shining Sun Let me be dust and ashes Until negativity turns away and vanishes Life is absolutely temporary But, God's Kingdom Come immediately On the contrary (it's not what I anticipated) I feel extremely numb... Fairly underestimated...feeling jaded...hated... What have I become? What have I become? What...have..I...done? Has these wars been won? I've came a long way in my lifetime, in my lifetime I have so much wisdom stored up in my brain, in my brain...I'm just a single grain... It's time I let go and stop committing sin's crime I have so many in my shoes and you'll look quite I truly sane? Longevity and everlasting life is what I own I don't care if you don't answer your phone When I am with God, I am never, ever alone So, don't pick a bone with me...the rest is unknown I see myself as I really am A broken-down, unstable dam A mighty lost, little lamb I hear myself as I walk around I'm a valley, below the ground A lot of mixed feelings per pound
