Be Anything, Be An Inspiration
The time is always ticking,
My mind is always thinking.
Nothing left to say
Whilst I'm hurting everyday.
The pain is always hurting,
The dark is always shading.
Nothing left to feel
Whilst my wounds do not heal.
The fire is always burning,
The smoke is always rising.
Nothing left to see
Whilst I'm lost in this debris.
The noise is always screeching,
The voice is always preaching.
Nothing left to hear
Whilst I'm surrounded by my fear.
When the time stops ticking,
When my mind stops thinking,
I will have everything to say.
When the pain stops hurting,
When the dark stops shading,
I will have everything to feel.
When the fires stops burning,
When the smoke stops rising,
I will have everything to see.
When the noise stops screeching,
when the voice stops preaching,
I will have everything to hear.
Without pain, without wounds,
Without problems, without journeys,
Without fear, without upsets,
Without trying, without dreaming...
Without pain there is nothing.
without wounds there is no healing.
without problems there are no lessons.
Without journeys there is no freedom.
Without fear there is no courage.
without upsets there is no happiness.
Without trying there is no knowing.
without Dreaming there is no aspiration.
