Can I Get An Amen?

Broken fragments of what we were.
One climbs out from their bed of black,
Found in the city of death.
An unknown nobody is whom we feel.
The burden of our own self can feel like a monster
And not just a monkey on our back.

The madness numbs us in ways we could never had imagined
And yet yesterday one was loaded with care.
Like the choice of choosing whether to walk on the sunny side
Or upon the side of the shadows.
This is the beauty of the mind. Your mind. Our minds.
The blessings of the living and for your life. Our lives.
Amen? Amen.
