Rise Above

Rise Above

Broken open
by a gash so deep

walking wounded
and for weeks couldn't sleep


Not without nightmares

as I cried out in vain

"how could this happen again?!
opened up, is all the pain
!"

The mirror held up to my face

lay shattered on the floor

my body sprawled upon the glass

infected, sick, and sore


I stared up at the ceiling

and saw the outlined wings

of an angel hovering, and singing

"A message I shall bring"


The message said; “you love so deep

that you count stars instead of sheep

amongst those stars you see Gods' face

and all the human lies’ disgrace

and though, my dear, you fell from grace

at the devils hands
you can command your final hand
you can refuse to be a victim

You can find yourself once again

to be your "rainbow from the rain"

you asked us once to bring you one

but we said with fate you're not done

Until you see the truth, behold

the true rainbow with colours bold


Each colour now, belongs to you

so be no more, on your head, a shoe

For that shoe just revealed it's true

reason why it intends to do

the act of darkness, inflicted upon you

the machine guns held up, to disarm you


Be not afraid of the firing range

you're bulletproof, if indeed you change

into the light warrior meant to be

coming in peace, shielding the tree

Stand strong with the light

and hurt you will not

without fire, fight

with the heart that you've brought


Into your deepest desire

for in which they call you a liar

rise above them, even higher

hear not the attempts to lower
rise higher!


Be with all good souls in Heaven above

Be with all good souls in the Power of Love

and Love Thy Enemy, without disdain

and you'll be the rainbow from the rain


Shining upon, having mercy below

for those who commit acts oh so low

for true love they will never show
and sadly they may never know


Such is that is the tragedy belonging to they

who make innocents their gamely prey

pity them, for what they will never know

yes, rise and shine, upon them below


Believe in yourself, your truth and you'll be

able to shield every standing tree

from systems with an axe to grind

and you may warm the hurt we find

Upon other light warriors too

whom on their heads, there stomps a shoe


So rise above
hold out your hand and pull them out
from the quicksand

So they don't disappear, in abyss

so they'll live in a peaceful bliss


You broke open to hurt and know

what's tried to have you sink below

and all the pieces you split into

revealed the colours, living all through you


The colours of love, the colours of truth

forget the kettle black which calls you uncouth

and now you know why, once and for all

so rise above the battle call


And hold your heart and head up high

and shine upon a cloudy sky

until the clouds part once again

for you be that rainbow from the rain

When you bring your colours all together

in the aftermath of the stormy weather

yes, you break wide open, as a being of light

so split into that rainbow bright!

All colours confused... come together again

in love and light, be eternally sane

forever without crying in vain

forever without affliction and pain
