From The Ashes…


I don't care at all because I care too much
Lost everything even the way our souls touch

Feeling nothing but Torment and pain
Blocking my thoughts Just to stay sane

The more I learn the less I know
Jumbled memories become my greatest foe

Hope for the best but plan for the worst
At times it feels As though you've been cursed

Remember the good but remember it past
Hope without action will never last

What makes us most human? Is love and remorse
The feelings in others you can never force

Anger is usually a product of fear
To block out the truth we don’t want to hear

Knowing the truth is only the start
Acting on knowledge plays the biggest part

Along the way you are bound to make mistakes
The bigger the change the higher the stakes

Don’t lose hope in your resolve
It may take time for your problems to solve

And now I move along playing the game
Making things better not just the same

Strength Courage and Wisdom are now my tools
Rise up above the naïve, ignore all the fools.
