When am I ready to surrender enough?
Enough to let go?
Surrender to the pain that drives me
To the fire that ignites when I open my eyes

On some days it’s harder
More difficult to let go
Hope for a better tomorrow
Let go of all the sorrow

Sometimes the pain reaches depths yet unknown to me
Then I just have to sit and feel
Eat and sleep
Until I can rise once more

Then it’s time again
Watch the sunrise again
Remove the covers
And taste the sweetness of life anew
