The Promise of Forever

 

There is a fire in my soul

Promises spoken in my bones

My life must extend beyond

my own limitations

But for the screams of someone to blame

I sink quietly into the ground like rain

I could not face the shame

All is quiet now like the night

Where evil goes unpunished

And the heavens look down in silence

While your voice is everywhere
