It piles on and on and on
Breaking back, achy knees
The strong connection felt with your comforter
Pleading for you to wrap yourself in it
Your shield from the real world.
When it feels like the time to give up
The stress amounts to more than any being could survive
The days seem to drag longer and slower
Your bed has become your best friend and confidant.
But a slight glow starts crawling through the window pane
It paints your walls gold
Illuminating the entire room.
The birds start singing.
The song that echoes throughout the room
The lyrical music causing you to sit up.
Almost as if possessing you
The birds muse like singing causes a revelation;
The sun will always rise
The birds will always sing
You will always have the strength
Pick yourself up, look in the mirror, and take on challenges.
The breaking back and achy knees will heal
You’ll learn how to breathe again.
Each obstacle is throw at you
To make you grow
To change the way you see things
The sun and birds are there for you,
For you to remember
Nothing can hold you down if you don’t allow it.
