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

Looking back at my past, so very dark,
I see my wounds, and who left the mark,
The loss of each, was the loss of myself,
I became a part of teh dark, lost to lights health,
I believed that nothing could bring me back,
That my world would remain forever black,
I lost sight of everything I had gained,
And soon, only my feelings of hate remained,
I was lsot, hoping I was never to be found,
In the night, my own bonds I had bound,
I once knew light, but wanted it no more,
What was to gain, another loss to hurt my core?

I came into the light once again,
Wondering to myself, where have I been,
I thought I would never again fall,
But once more, loss took It's great toll,
I believed myself healed, I thought that was true,
Maybe I was, but my heart split in two,
I can to love a women named Vallarie,
She brought me to the light, made me free,
She became a part of everything inside,
And when she was lost, my life became a wild ride,
I fell harder faster and further than ever,
I thought I was done, always and forever.

Now that some time has passed,
I realize that no night can ever last,
To go back to the lgiht, simply let go,
Leave your past behind, and soon you will know,
Come with me, journey back into the light,
Learn to feel again, to become alright,
Learn to resist teh dark, that would kill others,
Find survivors like you, become there brothers,
Bond together, and help those on nights road,
Become survivors of the night and learn the code,
Teach those you have helped of our ways,
Spread the light, help every soul to better days.

I love your use of imagery. A distinct picture forms in my mind everytime I read something you write. I love the fact that you are able to create such a powerful setting and emotion in your pieces. Amazing, and once again, inspiring :)
