Whilst the road ahead is uncertain and strange;
The sun still shines in its ember frame;
The stars still glow in that perfect night sky;
And the moon still smiles down from its throne up on high.
Despite this path, dark and remote;
There is a song to be sung and words to be wrote;
A family to love and a home to keep warm;
Regardless of pain, there will be a new dawn.
The pain of letting go, of a chance, to make you whole
When the absence of just a glimpse;
Makes your world about to end.
When life seems so hard that you feel you cant go on.
Weary head dropping to the floor;
Cool tile, caressing this abyss.
Blow after blow, life is dealing now.
Your self worth is shattered;
Bloodied tattered knees.
Pick up what is left?
Embrace your savaged corpse.
With frayed rope, grab on tight.
Claw back to life.
Time ends, distance fades;
Colors blend, 50 Shades.
Whip on the altar, blood cum stains;
Raging surrender, just lust remains.
What is the answer; to this abscess of lies;
Stop gate to anger; self righteous pain.
Engulfed in the master, his word the law;
Garrulous need, to ecstasy claw.
Fast forward this life of ours?
Hell will not let us through
Ours is both pain and pleasures
Where rain and fire ensues
Ours is to touch the sky
Yet to fall back to the earth
With bloodied nose, on bended knee
To reflect on our own rebirth
We will not run from sorrow
But hold it in our hands
For without this endurance
Joy is elusive sand
It will slip between our fingers
Until we pay the hefty dues
For there is naught without the other
And we have balanced up the tolls
