I don’t like going through life this way
Questioning every little thing the others say.
Trying hard to see the third side of the coin
Are these tales just in my head, or is my head in my tail?
Maybe I’m crazy, maybe I’m not but, these demons still whisper in my ear and this fire is getting hot.
Is this a self-imposed prison I’m living in?
I know we’re all guilty of sin but, the punishment doesn’t seem to fit the crime and here I am doing time.
I wish sometimes I could turn off my mind and find some sort of solace or silence.
I keep repeating these things in my head, wondering if I’m better off dead.
I feel trapped here and bitter because, though I’d like to leave, I’m not a quitter.
And I don’t want to hurt anyone but, in this damned darkness, it’s hard to see the sun.
And then an angel spoke to me,
Relax and forget duality, just love with consistency.
The only enemies are fear and apathy,
tricky illusions, cause us to forget our unity.
The fact that,
if I hurt you,
I’m just hurting me.
If I hate you,
I’m just hating me.
When you turn ME around upside down, it is WE that is found.
Remember love prevails and surrounds.
Have no doubt, it’s within, there’s no without.
I thanked that messenger who gave me wise words from her.
I’ll find strength in my pain.
I’ll dance in the rain of my tears,
Wash it away and it all becomes clear,
there is nothing to fear.
