Forget numbing all emotion;
Lock the chest and swallow the key.
Your mind will loop and make a commotion;
I pray that expression of the melancholy from within sets me free.
Forget anger, guilt, and self blame;
Easier said than done, this I know.
Life is not a fucking game.
The heart is a pendulum that sways to and fro.
Stimuli from the many, drills us down to nothing.
It does not seem to matter what form it takes.
All in the name of need, greed, synthetics, and apathy; just something.
Wound, rung, and strained like rubber bands endlessly until it breaks.
Thank god this art sets me free;
Being tied from the inside, broiled from within.
Why did it take so long for me to see?
True perspective can come from separation of the oppressive kin.
Are they who they say they are?
Not unless you find what lies beneath the surface.
I’ve heard this all before.
Pushing those for truth and honesty is like pulling teeth.
I’ve been cracked open, exposing my inner core, bleeding.
‘Tis time to open the door to the unknown.
Don’t worry, these things happen for a reason.
Forgiving and letting go does not mean you must condone the damage that had been done.
Betrayal, lies, hurt, and treason.
I’ve been so close to throwing it all away.
I cannot do that.
Giving up leads to a price so impossible to pay.
I won’t because of the love and light within my heart, yeah that’s where its ‘at’.
