Black storm clouds over my life
Dual wielding Pain and Suffering
I took my blades
Sliced a hole in the sky
Tore it open carelessly
Forced the sunbeams to shoot through my body
Cauterizing my melancholy
Burning a smile on my face
When I stand in shadows, now
It’s because something else is growing
Not because something is preventing me from growing
I need not be so aggressive
When darkness falls
It’s just life’s parade
Putting on a display for me
Showing me how to live
I need not slice or shred
I’ll unilaterally disarm
Learn from the universe’s instruction
To live forever
I first must live
The forever part can wait
Almost by definition
