Waltz

A room of seventy,
A mind of none,
A unique process,
In the heart of one.

A blinking tube,
And blood red curtains,
These staring eyes,
Of boredom, certain.

A Waltz in mind,
Crystal moonlight,
Thoughts start to quiver,
In an embrace so tight.

It’s a New Year,
with new days,
A new direction,
A fresh maze.

Yes you’ll have all your memories,
The remorse and regret,
The pains of before,
In your mind will be set.

But they’ll make you strive forward,
They’ll inspire your dreams,
‘Tis a hurtful world we live in,
With pain bursting at the seams.

You’ve hurt several friends,
You’ve done wrong every day,
But it always happens.
And I mean what I say.

I know how it is,
How sins can haunt,
They prick and poke,
And curse and taunt.

The world will still move on.
I know it will,
We all made mistakes,
Whose guilt we can’t kill.

But your life isn’t binary,
It’s not black and white.
There’s people to love,
And colours in sight.

Smile at people,
Go on, go ahead.
You look happy when you do,
It’s a message unsaid.

Feel better about yourself,
Not through masks or make up,
But like the warmth of the sunshine,
Or coffee from a cup.

You’ve been given a chance,
This mysterious riddle,
Question and observe,
At least then we’ll learn a little.

I need you to promise,
To whom it doesn’t matter,
That you’ll believe in yourself,
And not let it tatter.

Look at your mirror,
Tell yourself it’ll be alright.
Because it always has, and always will be worth the fight.
