Bitter times come flooding in,
Our hopes and dreams are growing thin,
Amongst the clouded skies and murky lies,
We find ourselves surrounded.
But even as doubt splatters like crimson paint
On the pavement of your dreams,
Do not despair.
Even as guilt engulfs you in its suffocating hold,
Do not give in.
Even as you struggle to fight off the demons lurking in every crevice,
Do not forget what hope feels like.
Look to the stars,
Find a calm that triumphs darkness,
Let it warm you and dry your tears,
Rinse away your greatest fears,
End this fruitless escapade,
Tear apart the barricade,
A special magic turns the tide,
Bringing life back to our side,
For even in the darkest times,
We’ll find a way to change our lives.
