How to change

There are times where all that matters
is whether we can

When our pain can let loose
one will stand there and bear it
when we have had enough
regardless of who should carry it
we get to feel resolve
to make a choice
and sometimes what’s right
takes a back seat to that voice

There are even ones
who will invite it onto them
questioning, seeking the pain,
not knowing what all might happen then

We want to carry the pain
bury it with ourselves
but when we come to be loathed
even further we delve
the icy waters of hatred
one can never reach bottom
the light shining, promising redemption,
has to itself yearn to be gotten

No matter the struggle,
the hope for change back,
the only relief must come from within,
you can’t trust others to give you what they lack.
