Forsaken II

Two steps forward, one step back.
That’s how it goes,
So they say.

One way ahead, no turning back.
Leap far and beyond, so I do.

There was a time I was forsaken.
Loneliness just crawling over me.
I was that and nothing else.
Burdens came, and went.

Collect what’s lost, put them together.
Make a new piece,
It’s what I do.

Images of the dark, I paint them over.
Lighten that morning, it’s what I learned.

There was a time I was forsaken.
Loneliness just crawling over me.
I was that and nothing else.
Burdens came, and went.

Even though a search,
can be long and then forgotten.
Loneliness is what I only felt.

A war within me,
A war against me,
I can change.

Destroy, what had forsaken me.

There was a time I was forsaken.
Loneliness just crawling over me.
I was that and nothing else.
Burdens came, and went.
My wounds are healed
