Pain is everywhere It's all over this world I see it in everyone No one is spared
Its in the child Whose innocence was taken
Its the grown man Who can't function a day Without the help of a substance
Its in the mom who is all alone And who is simply trying To make this broken house Feel like a home.
Is there anything else? All I see is pain. Is there nothing but this vacancy, That consumes my being? Is this all there is? Surely there is more than this.
I see the pain In the teenager Who draws lines on his skin That wont just leave But atleast this pain can be covered by his sleeve
I see it in the girl who gives herself away To any man Who she thinks she can make stay
I see it in the strong Who make themselves keep moving on For everyone else around them But inside they just want to die.
Surely there is more I'm telling you there has to be more. I close my eyes And I start to cry I open them and look up to the sky I want to scream at God "How could you let this happen?" "Where are you now, when all I see and all I feel is the pain?" But I don't say a word Because I know this simple truth If God does exist And I bet my life he has too I have no right to ask him no I have no right to demand an answer I can not understand who he is Or how big his plans are So I close my eyes And I thank him for the life I have
And I say to the child, and to the grown man, to the mom, and the teen, to the girl, and to the strong, I tell them thy can keep moving on. I have no positive answers and I'm sorry if that's not enough for you. But I believe its the truth and as for me I would rather embrace the painful truth than live in a comfortable lie.
Not very well written , sorry! Im not even sure I'm saying what I'm thinking in the right way just thoughts I have and figured I'd put them down.
