Letting Go Of The Past The images I see Staring through the looking glass Remind me of the times I kept them Locked away in the Past Trying to remember The things I hid away In order to find a way to unlock them So they can see the light of day Letting go of the Past I must try, I must try To face them, and release them Into the open air Letting go of emotions Kept inside, kept inside No more sadness to carry It's time I let them fade away Searching for the answers To questions deep within I kept inside for too long now This quest can never end In order to pursue a better life, I must agree, The answers must be pure and true So I can be set free Letting go of the Past I must try, I must try To face them, and release them Into the open air Letting go of emotions Kept inside, kept inside No more sadness to carry It's time I let them fade away The looking glass is telling me To open up my heart Sweeping away all the cobwebs And the stories that tear it apart I made a promise To recover from all the pain So I can breath the sweet air Of Life's rich beauty again Letting go of the Past I must try, I must try To face them, and release them Into the open air Letting go of emotions Kept inside, kept inside No more sadness to carry It's time I let them fade away #

IN THE FOG She hides in its illusion In the fog she is invisible Seeking its delusion But she is just delusional She thinks no one can see As she hides inside the fog But eventually it clears away And she's no longer blocked It's really paper thin It's not as thick as she may think And it's starting to sink in That this fog is just as weak As weak as she, that hides inside Instead of dealing with the world In the fog she's not alive And her voice, it isn't heard You can never get away from self Or hide from your own problems In the fog you're not invisible And this won't help you solve them #minds

THE FACE OF A CHILD When she was seven years old Coming from a broken home Her parents started fighting Her stepmother was crying And she was about to leave This was it, it was the end She couldn't fix, she couldn't mend A crying child, held her hand And told her, no, don't go.. I love you, please just stay.. Make it through another day.... Those days, they turned to years, she stayed An ending long, long overdue A relationship of turmoil, she ensued The face of a child made her stay She was thirteen when their real ending came Drugs and alcohol were to blame A father, no longer who he used to be A stepmother not available emotionally A lump grew in that childs throat That never really went away So many things had happened There is so much more to say Little by little she lets it out Deep down inside, her inner voice shouts #minds
