let it burn, suffering teaches the soul; let it grow, love nourishes the heart.

I think I understand, I think I can see,
You want distance from me; let me learn to be,
Otherwise, I may never learn to be free,
You want me to be alright, to be okay,
It’s something you’ve tried to say, on more than one day,
I just didn’t understand, because I was blind,
My judgment was clouded, as was my mind,
Now I see, some distance is needed,
It’s something I’m learning, advice being heeded,
I was arrogant before, it was my demise,
I made a mistake, and now I apologize,
I’m learning, learning to become wise,
You have much to teach, and can help me rise.
