I would really appreciate criticism. :hungry: Comment, please! Today is the day I cast away All the fears I've lived by. Side by side we slowly walked to the end of the earth and back. My hand was held in theirs A Vise-Grip to compare Locked in place without a trace Of strength left in the air. My days were as dark as night, Though to them I seemed alright. My smile was bright, My eyes were dim, My thoughts stayed on replay of a day, very grim. My blood was being burned. My trust was being torn. My very skin was darkening From the bruises that I had worn. My second skin was candy coated, With the face I couldn't show. With love and a family With laughs and a dream I'd thought it was one of God's nasty schemes. To keep me, locked in this nightmare To punish me, for thinking To rinse me, clean of opinions To revive me, to hear the lies. I'd ask him for forgiveness I'd receive an answer, not My life was spirling downwards My mind was beginning to rot My heart was turning cold My mind was giving away My love was 3 worlds too far My faith was fading away. Answer my cries, if someone is there up above Remove all these lies, replace them with love! Send me a hero to hold and to kiss Let there be power to help me dismiss The past that has gone and will not return My time is right now and its now that I learn How to love and too feel and to cherish my life How to push through the bad with terrible strife. Today I am loved, held, and caressed. I now believe I am truely blessed.
