Between silence and rage

I don't ever remember a time
When i allowed myself to rest
I was always on the frontlines
Giving it my best
I couldn't close my eyes
That would cause my fears to rise
I couldn't let down my guard
And be caught by surprise
After all these years the fighting has
Taken its toll
Its time to lay down my sword
And tend to my bleeding soul
I'll walk away from the edge
And allow my wounds to heal
My scars will be the pathway
For the colors to be revealed
I'll find my place somewhere between
The silence and the rage
As one chapter closes
I'll be encouraged by the blank page
Moving forward the day to day miracles
Will string the pages together
I'll dance between the rays of sun
And the rain of stormy weather
I won't rush past those simple moments
That can be so profound
The gifts are perfectly placed
So i can stand on solid ground
