beauty doesn't always have to mean pain.

beauty doesn't always have to mean pain.

the real tragedy is living a life uninspired

where our dreams will flow with hollow words

begging to be filled

but we drown them

and we abuse them

and we shatter them

and we pick up the glittering shards of broken glass

hoping to create new meaning in our pain

it's a shame that we find comfort in the darkness

when all we need is a match

to light inside us an eternal flame

you should know by now

beauty doesn't always have to mean pain.
