I wake up to reality and now it's calling me, to be the kind of hope you're looking for. But I am here, and you're so far away, so there's no more time to waste. No longer waiting, I'm ready to go... // run, charmaine //
||| a few stills of december daily life |||
i beg of you to love with your whole being & nothing less.
there is a world outside, love
hardened with cold, cloaked in brokeness, frozen in bitterness,
shadowed with hopelessness
and only you hold the power to melt this tundra.
there are too many pretty eyes dimmed with tears at night
too many nights haunted with memories of loneliness
and too many hands numbed with indifference
kill this cold with kindness.
you are broken, but don't let it stop you.
you're too young to turn a cold shoulder against this world
yes it isn't fair, yes people have silently walked out
and left your heart's pieces on the floor
seasons have left you to starve,
make sure to let life know
it hasn't hardened you
prove that it has strengthened you
& be a relentless message that love is on the way.
the world is a harsh place, it's chalk full of broken people,
there's not enough room to add to the piles of bad things
and we must leave it a better place than it was found.
