With Life Comes Beauty and Pain


To be unseen
To be unheard
When all around you come to lean
When all around you appears absurd

You hold your tongue
Though there is something to say
There’s something to be done
You haven’t got all day

Close your eyes
And look inside
Pier through their lies
And say your side

Undo the zipper that sealed your words
Count up your courage
Don’t join the cowards
No, your not damage

Feel the thoughts come to life
Look at them as the find the source
They hit them like a knife
Those words caused force

They fill with shock
But you fill with hope
The words hit them like a rock
You clime higher on that rope

When you reach the top
You’ll see them standing below
You won’t shed one teardrop
As they watch you go

You’ve come a long way
You leave the others behind
You’ve caught the breeze way
You’ve learned to speak your mind.
