My life is complex
God’s plan is perfect.
There are days when I wish I can have the passion without the pain
There are days when I get up and I want to go back to sleep again
But my demons don’t taunt me when I am greeted by the light
I don’t wear too much makeup, just a touch of eyeshadow to keep
My eyelids bright
Especially when the thunderstorms come pouring down at night
Pick up that pen and write
Why waste my energy and time to fight
So tired, but I am still searching for his insight
I realized that the stage is a sacred space
Built for the children of God to receive and share his grace
It’s not just a place to pick up the mic
Spit some fire, but leave no insight
Memorize a poem
Pull up and recite
Talk about changing the world, but still not living right
Sometimes I want to grab my pen and plunge in deep
Set my words on fire and listen to my heart speak
About the things that make Deepassionate1 weak
Like how I struggle with depression and learning how to let go
Of the things and the people who take my high and bring me low
About how I worry about the future and get stuck in the past
Talk about how many times I cried myself to sleep
While praying that the pain won’t last
I am still searching for the missing parts of me
And when I recover all the parts of myself I will be totally free
Free from the pain, free from my past
Free to be me, free at last.
