the past in our heart,
Like it is better
then the present start.
the hurts that've been done to us,
Like it's better
then openly choosing full forgiveness.
every record of wrong,
Like it's gonna help us
write the lyrics to a song.
all the memories of painful things,
Like there is a benefit
to continually remembering these vivid dreams.
every secret thing we've ever wanted,
Like they're better then
the things we been blessed with in the moment.
holding onto regret,
Like it brings more for us
then hitting the fresh reset.
feelings so deep,
Like we're afraid of what happens
when vulnerability we keep.
a desire for love,
Like to find it
would be more scary than embracing it.
the option and choice,
Like to live in fear, shame, guilt, and regret
is better than the abundant life course.
things in our hearts,
Like we don't have the control over it
in every part.
the power it seems,
Like to make the choice
to do incredible things.
the gift of life in so many ways,
Like we get the chance
each and every day.
so many deep things,
Like I wonder what it would take
for us to really live the life of our dreams?
