What Beats Beneath
Is this what we’ve been waiting for?
Their promise of life getting better?
The day when all the pain would suddenly fade away?
As if that nagging ache could be ignored
Just another lie to hold ourselves together
Like how wounds heal with each passing day—
They merely become sores we learn to tolerate
Making us look beaten, broken and bruised
But only through their eyes
Oh, if they could only see what beats inside
Hearing bells chime, that time has arrived
To see how all the painful pieces fit;
When we see all the hurt in the world today
Through our personal hells we’ve each lived
We smile, knowing we can handle it
While others become lost or led astray
Today’s our turn to lift them from the fray
They’re the ones who need us here
To stand tall and walk without fear
The reason why we’ve carried so much grief;
Keep your head held high and draw from your sheath
It’s time to show the world the heart we’ve hid beneath.
