This Too Shall Pass


Living barely in the underbelly of your heart

At every door you implore, but they tore you apart

Even though there are tears

They promise it won’t last

The mouth maybe yours but the words are theirs

And this too shall pass

When you realised what its like to sell out your time

The feeling was dismal, the pain abysmal, as they took your last dime

Even though the fire will rage

And take with it every blade of grass

You’ve suddenly grabbed the centre stage

But this too shall pass.

You don’t have to find when you’re blind, the things that you’ve lost

In the desert sand, you play your old hand but yet death will accost

Even though the price is paid

You see your life through the ice glass

For mercy you haven’t prayed

And this too shall pass
