Never glaze over sadness
Don't cover up the hurt with happiness because you wish it to be over
drugs and pills, food and thrills that push the symptom away from your attention
Force always causes tension
And your apprehension with sadness makes you digress from the problem at hand
Don't digest hate
Swallowing sorrow does not need to be your fate
It's strenuous to appreciate how you feel
But love wants you to be real
this meal of coverups and band aids are all a masquerade
it numbs your pain and dumbs your brain
To glaze is to gain an insane piece for your mainframe
To blaze is to refrain from the drain and push past this rocky terrain
To blaze is to burn yourself in the fires of your desires
And allow the true you to rise and receive your prize!
A new start
