Whether the shadows will consume,
or the light shall shine through,
Your screams stifled to silence,
or a voice resounding from you.
Whether fear claws away at your heart,
or you take one more step forward,
You can sit, cry and repent o’er loss,
or gaze at skies and fly upward.
You can lose yourself in the crowd,
or rise from ashes, above the rest,
You can feel hollow and empty inside,
or feel sacred, honored and blessed.
Choose to cut open, let scarlet flow,
or not give up, fight till the last drop,
Be helpless, tired and wandering,
or make full use of all you have got.
Be washed away with the tears of time,
or carve your name deep in the stone,
Lay down lonely and bereft of hope,
or stand, and you wont be alone.
Open the gates of guilt and remorse,
or make yourself known everyday,
Remain in the misery of days gone,
or believe in tomorrow after today.
You are either heart-broken, scarred and hollow,
feeling that this life holds nothing anymore,
Or you are revived and breathing, lead not follow
feeling that this life is what you were chosen for.
The choice lies in your grasp, this is your hour,
Look up now, the decision is yours to make,
Feel the fire inside, you alone have this power,
You have one life, which road will you take?
