Rebirth, the life that comes

After death.

The changes, constant changes

Of my voice, my will, my strength

Struggling to break the barriers

of silence.

This journey is one of dead ends,

winding roads, twists and turns.

And heartbreak.

But heartbreak in the search for love

is only a rock on my trail.

For only with the deepest agony

The greatest joy comes.

I find my purpose!

To love and be loved

Sit on the snow-capped mountain

and look down on my life

To realize how far I’ve come.

My footprints have left my trail

I remember where I’ve come from,

And my triumph is my rebirth.

To the children born to darkness

To the slaves waiting to be set free

To the ones holding on for dear life

Wondering if there’s hope anywhere at all

To the ones who’ve seen the lies

Since the days you were so small

They smile as they hurt

They tell you not to cry or you’ll be next

The hypocrisy, they put your Creator into your pain

They turn your tormentors into your saviors

Yet you still see the truth

Their world is lies, and you’ve always known

Listen to me, Listen, Child of Truth,

I thought there was no hope for me too

But you are not a slave, I am not a slave

And we are right, the world we were born into

is LIES, all LIES

And you are beautiful

And smart

And amazing

And your Creator smiles

At your questions

The questions that bring you punishment now

Will bring you freedom, Child of Truth

Don’t give up,

Don’t Die!

I am waiting for you!

There are many of us

Though we feel so alone

We will expose all their secrets

And freedom will be ours

Creator gave us a gift

To see through their lies

To shine light on their secrets

And bring freedom to the slaves

The generations coming after us,

Waiting for us, Waiting for Hope

Waiting for a hand to reach out to them

We have to survive this, Child of Truth

It hurts so bad we want to die, but we won’t

We won’t because Creator gave us a mission

We are going to free the slaves

Slaves, like we once were

We will be free one day, free for good

And we will bring hope to the others

I need you

They need you

Please don’t die

Stay with me

We will expose this together
