With A Doing Done One Can Prove


Healing from an ache is a big deal.
To maneuver skipping over many hurdles.
And doing what it takes is a big deal,
When a mending from a heart that breaks...
To not again repeat mistakes.

Romanticizing life...
Diminishes!
When a storm comes to rock one's house.
And the bottom seems to fall right out.

Romanticizing life...
Quickly finishes!
When a stinging of a meaning is felt.
And no one else is there to blame...
But oneself.

Healing from an ache is a big deal.
And doing what it takes is a big deal,
When skipping over hurdles to maneuver...
Is done with a doing to prove,
Clouds to face can be removed...
With a doing done one can prove.
Clouds to face can be removed...
With a doing done one can prove.
