My War To Wage

Mon, 07/11/2016 - 07:24 -- FCAlumn

Will the sand stop the ocean
From devouring all of me
Can I be counted among the broken
Or am I forgotten and left unseen

The truth is its all a lie
This costume I put on for you
Its not that I wanna die
I just wish the past wasn't true

Grab history and change its course
But would it still lead me to you
You'd saddle up and ride that horse
If you knew the pain it could undo

Will I be able to free my soul
Its not the path I wanna take
Will my light escape this black hole
And make the unmovable shake

Though its not my will be done
That will bring love to everyone
It is my war to wage
To make monsters feel this rage

Its time to stand up and shout
Chase all of the demons out
This is the struggle I will choose
To bring an end to child abuse
