This poem is written for my project, titled - "The Other Side Of The Sky"
In volume three: A Chance For Change

To Save Your Life
To Save Your Life

Heroes are hard to come by

Especially in this day and age

Because of you- I am still alive

Hail, the vanquisher of pain
I fought as long as I could have
But I sank into the weakness below
And I felt my sorrow's wrath
The helplessness took over

My fists let go
Of the resistance

I fell from hope
The light faded in the distance

It was all a dream
A wish...

A simple false belief
I hid...
Hands dangled frantically / Tears dripped endlessly
I needed a hero to save me / I yearned to be set free
A hand reached out
Held tight...

I was finally found
Relieved sigh...

I rose back to grace
And the darknes
Healing My Heart
Healing My Heart

I thought a day like today would never come
When a sincere smile finally broke through
And I've grasped onto this sense of freedom
When I forged this connection with you

I was so deep into it
Thinking I never would get out
Being stuck in the past has made me into this
But now I hold my head up instead of facing down

Because of this, I've realize there's a difference between my tears
I used to only shed the ones for all of the mistakes I've made
Which I've cried  for all of those long, and lonesome years
Until today, so I'm overwhelmed by the relief you gave

Undone, unvexed, unbroken
The difference is t
Sobriety's Rise
Sobriety's Rise

I exiled you from my veins

You will never affect me again

Take with you the very worst of me

I will no longer be a part of thee!
Too long have my eyes been closed
So many years have passed in vain
I couldn't let the road ahead get any worse

I'm no longer a victim of your taint
I dwell no more- in those old woes
Though I regret the pain I allowed myself to sustain

Mirrors don't snare / Family doesn't glare
This hope I bear / I've made it here

Cleansed my spirit away / Allowed scars to fade
Embraced the change / Unlocked the cage

My dreams no longer weep
The nightmares refuse to reimmerse
I can move forward if I really

This completes volume three. It was a really awesome experience writing this particular one. I wish I did more than four per volume. :P

ok, to start off I want to say that this reminds me of that painting from a certain painting Michel angilo made in a certain chapel, that gives the originality a 4, but since everyone including me loves it (even more so in multi color)
I am willing to play nice.

also the vision, technique, and impact of the thing makes it all the nicer to look at.
really, I am truthful about this, I have a deep passion for multi-colored artwork (tye-dye, splash paintings, you name it).
and I am glad I came across when I did and am even more pleased I can review on it.
awesome job.
What do you think?

The message in this is so important. It really does produce imagery of a crowd just standing, watching while the broken humbly pass them by.
I especially enjoyed: " So I’m grateful I was taught that I...don't need to know you to reach for you "

All in all a very thoughtful piece that inspires true empathy for others.
Well done!

Empathy was key ever since I got the working title in mind. This actually has a long, long story behind it, but I felt the story was too touchy to be included in some way. So I thought to myself that I should just try and make the message within it mean so much more that it will inspire and motivate every day people to do better and more caring for once.
Thank you for the feedback, it's very much appreciated.

This is so amazing..the humanity in everyone is different..our moral and sensitivity training so to speak is what makes a difference...also if you go through so much pain you get immune to the emotional signs....I would reach out and help..I often do in one way or the other...try and share love and compassion..this is the only thing that separates us from the ones who just don't care enough to care...You be the Change You Want to See...that is a good place to be....Hugs My Dear!! Love Ya!!!

Oh my goodness! I love this! Normally, I don't favourite poems... But this is the best yet! And I love the rhymes, they feel as though they aren't forced, as if they came naturally, if that makes any sense! Beautiful! Powerful!

Love this. But did you mean "mass" or "mask"? Just wondering...
RecoloringLife Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I meant mass.
