Theme: Rebirth

The Light of Scattered Virtues

I was leaning on all I thought I knew to be true,
And suddenly it all crumbled from beneath me.
I fell to the ground, tears streaming from my eyes.
Somehow unable to look into the face of Truth.
I covered my eyes from the blinding light,
Not realizing my efforts were all in vain.
Why could not I have prevented these misfortunes?
These trails and errors hurt more than just myself.

"Free me!" I cried, "From my bounds of self pity!"
"Save me," I begged, "From the torment in my soul."
"Burn away from me the dark skin of regret..."
"...So that I might relive the better me..."
The blinding light faded and flickered out,
An etched inscription at it's source.
I approached the letters standing there before me.
Trust Yourself and Let It Be, is all they said.
