i can feel it in your vibe
you can’t sleep
i can see it in your smile
your strained cheeks
as if nobody is listening
putting up a façade
feigning what you wish to be
happy

you keep those emotions locked away
when expression is key
but depression can speak without you
and i know you have a lot to say
i know you have a lot on your mind
i know you wish to stop and rewind
taking you back to blissful moments
taking you back to younger days
not concerned with watching the time
but those times have passed

brighter horizons
is where you are headed
even when life is at a dead end
love will be waiting for you on the other side
even when you thought no one heard your troubled cries
love will be waiting for you on the other side

put all you are into all that counts
put all you are into all that doubt
i can feel it in your vibe
you can’t sleep
i can see it in your smile
your strained cheeks
as if nobody is listening
but i tell you
your better days are ahead of you
this is not yet the best of you
love

A. Hymn || you are not alone

I don’t know if home really exists
But it feels like I’m getting close
Close to home
It feels like I’m almost home

I always believed that inspiration will come
So welcome every set back
I’ve learned not to turn your back on the drawing board
Just keep going back to the drawing board
I’ll make sure to leave a message before calling it quits
Balling my fist
Balling up a list of regrets
Balling up a list of the things I forget
Holding onto the handful of wisdom I’ve attained over the years
Reminiscing over the tears
Reminiscing over my fears
How helping hands from others have me forever endeared
I look at how things could’ve happened
How I wouldn’t be here
How the things I can hardly imagine are pulling me near
Pulling me
Close to home
It feels like I’m almost home

The journey will always continue
Breath by breath
Step by step
It demands everything in you
It commands everything in you
Despite everything you’ve been through
It’s the reason you’re still around
You are getting close
You are almost home

A. Hymn || almost home

i think it’s better not to focus on keeping a positive attitude. understanding we all have our own phases. tides. whether high or low. it is important to remember that you are whole but you can also be many. accept the clouds that follow. brood in darkness if you have to. because i bet you the light at the end of the tunnel is really just the future you that overcomes.
