A candle slowly melting When the flames eat me away, Burning brightly as I can, Amidst the growing darkness.
A flower blooming in winter As the cold freezes me over, Opening my arms to heaven Amidst the harshest blizzards
A wanderer in the middle of nowhere As the world grew bigger before me, Trying to find my way home Even when the world is against me.
Enough. Let me take my rest. Let me sleep in the winter Let me lie in the darkness Let me make my home elsewhere I'm simply human Flawed and bruised Lost and afraid Trying to be the best that I could be Even when everyone is against me.
Let me sleep Let me rest Amidst this unending storm Let me surrender To the waves and the wind Let me find peace Even when there is none I'm simply human And I'm tired.
Glad to be back. It's been a while. I hope you're all doing great, amidst all of this carnage.
Rest if you need to. You and I, we're all human, and when things are tough, we need to rest.
