Beautiful pains

Wednesday, 23 May 2018

The heat is always rising, everything has  been on fire
Today is a painful reminder of why
We should only be getting brighter
And further put it behind us

We are always  standing in the flames
It's never been a beautiful kind of pain
But now we setting  fire to yesterday
Find the light

Today was the tornado warning
Tomorrow is like the morning after
Our world is torn in half
No more waking the mourning process
But rebuilding, we're a work in progress

Tomorrow is a whole new chapter
It's never going to be like an enormous asthma
Thunderstorm has passed us
We weathered it and poked its eye out
With the thorn bush
We will smell the roses

So focused on the bright side
Never looking back
But every day is a new learning curve as we
Steer through life,
sometimes we might not want to swerve
But we have to
To avert a disaster
And permanent damage

But yet we're still alive
Which means we will survive
Although today we may weep because we're weakened
And everything seems so bleak and hopeless
The light that we're seeking
Will begin to seep in
That's the only thing keeping us from leaping the end
And we should be pulling for us to push through this feeling
And with a little time we should do the healing
And by tomorrow we may even feel so good that we are willing to forget even after
And all the things we've been  through
this feeling of resilience is building
And the flames are burning quick as fire would sweep through any building
We're sealed in but we're fireproof, flame retardant, we withstood it

As time passes
Things change every day
The wound will heal, even though the scar still remains the same
But tomorrow today's going down in flames
Throw the match, set the past ablaze
Exhale deep and breathe a sigh of relief
And as we say goodbye to the grief
It's like watching the walls melt in
But we've extinguished this living hell
Still a little piece of us dies as we are living
Rising, a phoenix from the flames
We've have learned with wings that we will fly
