In The Midst Of It All

I am moving memories in my mind
I have tried to forget the white lines which use to divide you and me
I have survived your lies
I have weathered the storm
I have been through it all

In the midst of it all
I feel so small
All I want to do is curl into a ball and hide away from it all
Even though, you keep telling me that I am stronger than before

I feel powerless in my body
I feel strong in my mind
How can these two worlds collide?
I have tried to ignore the pain but I cannot keep it a bay

These parallel lines keep me from reaching the other side
I have tried to run and hide
I have tried to divide the burden of responsibility and pain
At the day I have managed this disarray
I don’t feel betrayed, just tried at the end of the day

In the midst of it all
I find sanity in the chaos
I find solace in the silent
I am not afraid at the end of day
I will be okay
I will keep the sunshine in my heart
I will not let the wind tear us apart
I have come this far

For now, it is time begin again
It time to live in the moment and stop wish for a better tomorrow
Just content in this moment with people who care
I know I belong there

In the midst of it all
Life has never felt better than now
Surrounded by calmness, peace and clarity
I am at last home with family
