How did my self worth
day to day
change to how useful I am
I have scribbled across thousands of drafts
I couldn't write a sentence of absolute truth.
Is this the one?
You were the sun
Lately, all you do is
All I've ever looked for is glory
A beautiful future and majestic history
but there's real grace in anonymity.
Alive within one hour of God’s time
I could never fathom a pain more painful than losing you once, until you came back and I was forced to lose you twice.
When I forget the meaning behind my own words who says there was any meaning at all.
And when the words are all you remember who says you ever knew there was meaning.
In the torch of fire,
someone is burning,
dying every second
to keep the flame alive.
meaningless things are more meaningful in life.
and some meaningful things don't hold much meaning for you.
Burning the last of her
to be their only source of light.
