There's a river a mighty river flowing from my tired eyes
And its carrying deep within it a thousand hurts a thousand sighs
I cannot stop it, for it is growing; and the overflow is great
It will soon become an ocean, flood my heart before too late.
I need a lifeboat for I'm sinking, beneath the words that spark this rhyme.
Who will help me through this moment: painful verse, painful time?
Tell me where the logic comes from with the hurting that is done.
I'm so human and I am fragile, I can see all my emotions run..
Pause the moment, rewind the picture; let us start this scene again:
All this trauma shouldnt happen;it shouldnt be allowed to re-begin.
Only if life could be so simple: how many tears would not be shed;
Yet, I must pass throught this moment: push aside my fear and dread.
