When you'd prayed so hard that you were mistaken.
Knowing it had happened before, a hundred times over,
That lesson seems harder to learn every time.
The first impression turned out to be correct.
Despite being well masked over time,
The plastered face cracks and disintegrates,
The walls come tumbling down,
And you're left with that dust-like powder
That manages to infiltrate every corner of your world,
And seems to seep into your soul;
Clogging your lungs so you feel like you're suffocating;
Blinding your eyes, which seem to see so much clearer
Once the tears wash that dust, and grime, and waste
The fallen wall leaves a vacant space, for a while,
But all space will be filled;
Whether with use or with folly does not matter.
It is how we re-build;
How we build those fresh foundations.
Find new faces,
And make them a part of our own existence;
How we love when we know it will hurt,
Fight on in the face of adversity,
Endeavour to better ourselves when it would be so easy to settle with things the way they are;
Dream our dreams and leave them at that.
Some things you can't control,
Others you can;
If it's not right, change it and keep changing ‘til it's right.
Life's too short to just hang around.
"You've gotta' dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt.
Sing like there's nobody listening,
Live like it's heaven on earth.
And speak from the heart to be heard."
