I Iry to hide the insomniac craze
With a smile and friendly gesture.
Lest they see the gaping wounds
And how quickly they have festered.
But the brokenness seeps through
The crippling fear of my exposure
As a wounded soul who seems
To be incapable of closure.
Questions begin to plague my mind,
Why do I feel so wretched?
Why am I so overwhelmed
By the need to feel accepted?
What makes me so fearful?
Death is only a part of life.
I've known from an early age
That one day I would surely die.
No doubt I've lived recklessly,
That's the beauty of forgiveness.
So why is it so hard for me
To accept that I'm forgiven?
Who am I to say it's over?
Who am I to say I can't?
Who am I to say it's impossible?
God has given a second chance.
Who am I to say I'll never
See the sun begin to rise?
When I saw the break of dawn
Bless the sky so many times.
Maybe nothing is impossible.
Maybe one day I will see
That all of this will change
By changing how I look at me.
