After This

They said that old wounds heal after time

The destruction that has kept us in a dark place for so long

But when things seems to fall in place

Playing in our ears, your favorite song

Cries drowned us and washed us in the iniquities of our souls

Wondering why the past contentment still follows us as we grow old

When enough is enough we have to break the chains and take off the shackles

To release the pain from miseries 

Painted in a dark cloud; a real imagery

The storm is almost over; never giving up

It’s called faith so don’t live by luck

The dark cries and the hell that was only brought on us as a test

A test of strong faith

A strong human-being

Being tested in an unjustly world


After this

The sun will continue to shine bright

Sometimes we go through things to put on a fight

I’m not writing this in a poetic sense of mind to preach and shout

But to only share a piece of encouragement without a doubt

For the dark days will pass

Teas fades away until a vacant spot

Brighter days are coming for 

A God still exists in this time 

This generation

Standing among mountain tops

Reigning from all over these nations

Put away the deadly behaviors that causes you to stress and to worry


Don’t boost and mope

Let the devastation be weary

Cast them out and kill the enemies with only a smile

Your heart and faith will cry out loud

Never kiss the devil with a deadly kiss

When the ship has boarded on the reality of life

The race will continue

After this
