Misery seems to be everywhere in life, however there is always beauty through the pain.

I didn’t choose the life that’s been given to me,

I didn’t choose the pain,

The suffering,

A heavy heart,

A life that tears me apart,

The endless tears,

Growing up beyond my years,

Each night the question arises:

 

Why me?

 

It’s the pain that turns into beauty,

The weakness that makes me stronger,

The tears that push me to continue for a short while longer,

When everything turns black,

The wisdom of my youth taught me to watch my own back.

When the sky turns grey,

The suffering taught me ‘it’s okay’,

 

Will anything ever be ‘okay’?

Or will I die in misery?

When will this world come to an end?

On these questions, I depend.

 

Despair will come.

Despair will go.

The hope I had will never again show.

 

However, listen to these words:

It’s the pain that turns into beauty,

I didn’t choose the pain,

I didn’t choose the life that’s been given to me,

It’s a fight to stay sane,

Under a world that’s insane,

 

But I will remember,

Even when my heart is as cold as December,

There is beauty through the pain.
