A scream needs a lifetime

A scream needs a lifetime to be heard!
Who has lived that long?
Who has seen the awakening of Christ?

I would turn into ashes in a moment or two
Time It takes for a voice to travel across

Man tries to distant himself from sorrows, but why?
How can you separate a heart from a soul?

Feel of a feeling is the hardest of all
Pain, when crosses its limit
Becomes a balm and soothes the woe
