Pain and Enlightenment

PAIN
Why is it the things she said are always making me shake my head.
Like for instance it is what it is or be glad you got out when you did, or to add to it, grow up stop being a kid.
It’s almost as if she has no remorse, is it her cold dead heart that is a driving force?
Or did it all start from punching walls and slamming doors?
Either way it makes no sense, and the words she says make me so tense.
Maybe I should start punching walls and slamming doors, then she would know what all this fucking hurt is for?
It’s all bullshit, the way I see it, you left me, alone to try and be me.
But I couldn’t do it without you by my side, believe me,
I’ve tried,
I’ve tried,
I’ve tried.
Yet you sit back and all the pleasure while I’m in pain, and yet you’re the only 1 that has anything to gain.
The words of “I love you”, and “I do” are stuck in my brain.
How is it you can forget of what we were and just move on?
Your emotions show nothing, it’s almost as if you’re glad I’m gone.
Why is it life can be this way, give you all the joys then take them all away?

ENLIGHTENMENT
In a short amount of time, it will hand you all you can hold, like a awful deal of the cards, and all you can do is fold.
So much for the glory and the happiness that came along, even the best parts can’t write you a song.
Remember the good times and all of the smiles, remember the long walks that seemed like miles.
Forget all the bad things that happened too fast, to overwhelm you with emotions that still seem to last.
Only for a moment time will stand still, and only for a moment this is how you’ll feel. Kneel only to God, when you need to pray.
His answer will be simple, and this is what He’ll say; “Life goes on and won’t skip a beat, get back up and onto your feet. Continue on my precious Son, you will be happy you did, when you’re time on Earth is done.”
