To Grow Wise

We all will grow wise differently, doesn't matter how you do, but how you are today.

To Grow Wise


You’re asking if I remember

When I hauled my hope over my shoulder

I felt like I was this burning ember

And my life had never felt colder



Is it crazy that I never forgot?

The something that has yet to leave me

Wondering everyday if I’d make it or not

Or if I’d have a chance to even flee



The shadows that hurt

The luster that dyed

The chillness that burnt

And the girl who cried



Now years have passed by my eyes

So how dare I leave this pain without review?

My only wish is to grow wise

And I am the girl who sees the world new

The End
