Forgive & Forget


I wrench my heart,
I expose my soul,
My being has become,
Black as coal.

You look at me,
You’re scared, yes?
You can’t look away,
You’re a bit of a mess.

I saw the truth,
That you ran away from,
I made it mine,
Stood in the eye of the storm.

You look at me,
Trying to find your friend,
But after the cards you played,
I’m afraid it’s our end.

I’ve wrenched my heart,
And now I’m cold,
So I find the will,
To throw out the old.

I twisted my soul,
And now I don’t care,
About you and your fears,
Your substance lies bare.

Walk away now,
While you have a chance
A few lessons wait for you,
Karma does its wicked dance.

I promise you this,
Through all the pain and the sweat,
I’ll walk away smiling,
I will forgive & I will forget.

 

A New Dawn


7_10_12NewDawn

Step after step,
We walk ahead,
Learn what we must,
And move on ahead.

Bleeding from our eyes,
And crying from our hearts,
We move away from life,
With a smile and nothing else.

Scars hidden deep down,
Hidden by layers of lies,
Only a smile to show for,
The broken spirit inside.

One face for the mirror,
Another one for the world,
We’re all just as broken,
As the glass beneath our feet that lies.

A clean white soul may arrive,
Such is our hope for redemption,
In our being we can’t deny,
The struggle for vindication.

The shackles of guilt may fall away,
The weight of betrayal may rise,
Half alive we can only pray,
For life to lose  its disguise.

Love believes its truth,
Is the only hope we live by,
Those who cant see it,
May in their own lies die.

One final time I close my eyes,
I’ll pray for a new beginning,
To wake up to the light,
Of a brand new dawn.
