Happiness from deep within, I look around and find myself, again.
Challenges, walls of concrete I break, I do not hesitate.
Tears, stream down my cheeks, a breeze scatters them across my face
I know, I kneel, I hold on to that belief in myself, I cry.
Withered roses, petals dry and crunchy, in the box I place them, now
I cover it, the details in the beauty, I do not see
The real deal, the sky, the ground, the people around me.
I yell, I shiver, in the cold I wither, I crack
A cover, a blanket, I take off and now I’m naked.
Exposed, I am exposed.
With rope, with glue, with clamps and screws
I bind it all together
My might, my heart, my own desires, fluctuate in the dark
A candle, with no match it cannot light.
My inner flame I call, asking for that spark
I know, I know, it hides with bitter silence
Now I know, silence with no light, I tell myself the same.
Excruciating pain, no morphine in a drip, I challenge
Myself and all the folks around me, look
I light my path without the wax
I light my path, hold on.
