Waking Up

Eyelids held
Tight

And mind
Ablaze

Seeking some
Refuge

Through the
Days

Pain too heartwrenching
To handle

Hate too easy
To bear

Wind warped
To answer

What was
Already there

Chaos
Sprouts

In different
Ways

Early in the
Mornings

Or late in the
Days

When sleep is
Upon us

Holding us
Tight

Our shields are
Down

No matter
Our might

With that comes
The war

Raging
Inside

Grasping for
Straws

We're unable
To hide

Until we
Faze in

With none
Too much ease

Casting away
Shadows

Or ideas
Of the past

Or casting out
Hope

From days
That won't last

Opening eyes
To bright shining morn

Feeling at
Ease

While mind
Is raging storms

Calm it
All down

Put smiles
In place

Of the frown
That we grace

Now put up
The shield

And safeguard
Your head

It's time
To wake up

Don't go back
To bed.
