A Letter to Those Who need it.
Dear Weary and Tiresome Souls,
When you get caught up with years from the past
Does it make you ache for what didn’t last?
Are you strong enough to stand when shame passes through?
Or do you bandage your wounds to hide them from view?
Has it become hard for you to breathe bearing all that weight
It’s easy to wander when the narrow gets too straight.
Your shoulders carry burdens in a level stack.
Underneath all that pressure, you will crack.
So you’ve lost someone dear to your heart
You never thought you would be apart
Cherish them with melodies and beautiful Hymns
Breathe in that sweet breath of life in remembrance of them.
Do you wake up worn and ill with fear?
Afraid and worried about what looks unclear.
Drowning in a sea of oblivion and swallowed by panic.
We live in a dying world. What's more tragic?
Here’s to another night booking a vacant heart.
Lonely complaints are off to a good start
That bottle there is not your friend.
Vices fill the void, an invitation to sin.
Look in the glass and tell me what you see
The lies of who they tell you who to be?
Habits are formed by the insecurities we let ourselves believe.
With routines like that there’s nothing, we’ll achieve.
I see you're worried about making it through the week.
Calculating numbers in your sleep.
Working overtime for that curly-haired little boy.
Cashing in paychecks so he can have that toy.
My friend, pick up your broken pieces
Send them to heaven where all pain ceases
Surround yourself among the wildflowers
Don’t be afraid to knock down your tower
When it feels like everything hurts
And you can’t find a remedy to cure
Dance underneath the weeping willow
And say a prayer as your head hits the pillow.
You aren’t meant to walk through life alone.
As humans we are accident-prone.
Reach for the stars and call out to the moon.
He will send an army to be there soon.
Creator of the atmosphere
Let us know that you are near
Take our burdens, help us cope
Down here on earth please give us hope.
