- What Matters
Feel the pain: It is the agony of defeat;
It is the tears streaming down your face;
It is the strangled cry as time stops;
It is your heart torn out and bleeding on the ground.
Barely Moving. Barely Breathing.
Feel the pain: It is the end;
It is the light leaving your eyes;
It is the last breath of air taken;
It is you body cold and still on the ground.
Not Moving. Not Breathing.
Feel the pain: It is the beginning;
It is the life entering your body;
It is the hope as time starts;
It is your steps toward the blinding light.
Now, feel the pain: And start again;
Pull yourself together;
And pick yourself off the ground.
Now, live again.
