I don’t know how I am feeling now
All I know is that it feels good.
I’m looking back now at where I once stood
Head down, hiding under a damp hood
Soaked by the rain;
Just focusing on the pain
Running through every vein in my body
Staining every move I make.
Blocking every new lane I try I take
And every decision I make.
Making my laugh and smile seem fake
As I try to go on for my own sake
And now the rain comes down as flakes.
But as it gets colder
I get bolder as I find a new shoulder
To cry on as its stronger than a boulder
When it can’t break.
So I’ve found my new aim
To go longer and further in this life game
As I block out the pain and ignore the shame
That grew inside of the vicious flame
That engulfs every blame that befell me
As I found for myself that others point at you
Because blame is the game they use to hide their own shame.
