Forcibly dragged through the dirt
Handcuffed to the carriage of time,
try not to focus too much on your suffering.
For it is the scars that will make you humble
It is the blinding sun that will help you see
It is the dust of perishing memories you choke upon,
that will help you cry up to the heavens.
As the trail of blood behind you hardens,
the droplets will make their way back to the ocean
And find new souls to inhabit.
