Runaway Smile

"Heal!" I feel like screaming at my wounded, bleeding heart
"Fight!" I try to challenge, afraid to dream at night
"Care!" I cry to no one, knowing that they won't hear
"Laugh!" I say to sorrow, wishing it'd disappear
All I think and feel and am is swallowed up tonight
In a giant, swirling tangle that's being brought to life
I want to let it go, to feel the warmth again
And maybe someday I'll hear the whisper,
"Wake up, stand tall. You can."
