When I was young and unafraid,
I learned that love would burn,
from the mistakes I made
I would eventually learn,
to trust and though I must.
The pain would not take hold,
my heart and soul would be bold.
I would take what I needed
for my spirit to be completed.
Now that I am older, hopefully wiser
I'll do anything to understand her,
including letting my soul bleed,
because love is what we truly need
in this world to survive,
to stay alive. . . in a world gone mad. . .
