Let me be an example in the chaos
Let me be a voice in the silence
Let me be a light in the darkness
Let me be wisdom in the confusion
Let me be depth in the wading
Let me be strength in the weakness
Let me be a compass in the storm
Let me be peace in the misery
Let me have perfect set of words to say to someone who needs it just as much as I do
Someone who feeds the same demons and travels the same road to the same Hell
Someone who spits fire and feels the same guilt and shame when they face themselves in the mirror
Someone who understands when all you can do is nothing at all
So bruised and broken trying to find a way back home
Why is it so hard to picture a life without all the pain
We torture ourselves and give ourselves such a low esteem
Like we're a small price to pay for the guilty pleasure of giving in to that perfect sin
