Exposed soul, openness never felt so good,
I had forgotten how it felt to be true.
To have all secrets and lies push aside,
Give happiness one more try.
This is the model I want to live by,
The scared and empty days are left behind,
Done with those nights that all that would be done is cry.
Looking back the reason why seem so shy.
That’s what happens when you let go of torturing pain,
Let out the rain and start to gain,
Put your life forward, board the next passing train.
Sometimes hope seems so far off,
But that’s the last thing left in Pandora’s box.
You brought on calamities that I had never seen,
Made every day seem like it was mean,
But now my heart is clean.
I have found a new reason to shine.
I hope one day I can call it mine.
But if I don’t, I know my new found heart will be fine,
Because I have learned to revive and survive.
