Poetic Thought

Trying Like Hell

I hope you’re finding some peace
You see I’ve walked the road you’re on now
I trust your heart is at ease
and that your walking on solid ground now
Regrets still choke you sometimes?
Come swelling up from inside?
Trying like hell to release
the hell that lies behind you?
I hope you’re finding some peace

I hope you’re finding some strength
You know delusion can drain your power
I trust your rhythm’s in sync
not gnashing teeth with that urge to devour
You see ignore is a root
an empty word left undone
Trying like hell to refuse?
Are you the ignorant one?
I hope you’re finding some strength

Trying like hell to be felt in this clutter?
Should you scream out?
Should you wimper?
or mutter?
Trying like hell to dismiss all this bullshit?
Crossroads like that, it’s one or the other

I hope one day you’ll turn back
for just a moment to recognize it
I trust you’ll stop in your tracks
and you won’t stoop to criticize it
Because you’re still the same one
that you destroyed with your fun
I know you’ll take every twist
Pretend this can’t exist
I hope one day you’ll turn back

I hope you’re finding your way
around and into the fears that block you
I trust you’re working the earth
and still dodging the demons that stalk you
I feel you watching me too
A fearful eye will blind you
You ask me how do I know
Well, I’m here down below
I hope you’re finding your way

I hope you’re doing it right
and not just basking in your perfection
I trust your judgment is sound
and that you’re able to find direction
No they won’t let you back out
It’s yourself you should doubt
You should know that you’re wrong
See, I watched it so long
I hope you’re doing it right

Working like hell to wake up from this nightmare
Should you reach out?
Should you hand out
and share?
Trying like hell to decipher this bullshit?
Should you see? Should you look? Should you just stare?

I hope you’re trying like hell
and that you’re not as cold as you’re showing
I trust you’ll see your facade
For that wall is quickly growing
Trying like hell to get through
the mire you fell into?
Your soul got sick this one time
That’s now your mountain to climb
I hope you’re trying like hell

I hope you’re trying like hell
I hope you’re trying at all
I hope you’re trying like hell
