Inspired by the songs of Alter Bridge (Metalingus) & Creed (Weathered)

I lie awake on a long dark night.

I can’t seem to tame my mind.

Keep dwelling on what might have been.

But can’t let regret waste my life again.

I’ve been defeated and brought down.

Dropped to my knees when hope ran out.

The time has come to change my ways.

To look upon the future for brighter days.

I now see clearly everything I don’t want in life.

To leave it all behind, the agony and the strife.

No bitter place and not a broken dream.

To only hear the angels sing and not the demons scream.

But when the ashes fell, it gave my soul the chance to rise.

What’s done is done, it won’ t be my demise.

So I press forward towards a goal to achieve.

For success can only exist when we choose to believe.

About the Author Mr. Boza

The summer of 2019 was when I decided to no longer go through life holding my feelings, my thoughts, and my emotions contained within. I needed a change in life and since I made that decision, life has been so much more liberating. Nowadays my writing helps me express myself in a way that allows me to feel whatever it is that I'm thinking or feeling or even yearning for, pour out and not consume me from within. My work is simple to read, simple to understand, and hopefully is the type of writing that makes someone smile when they read it. Enjoy.
