It amazes me how we are all connected and part of the same human conditions. Nearly everyone can relate with heartbreak or maybe it’s just my age. I guess if you live long enough your life is all the richer if you let your heart bleed along the way. This poetic duet was done with my friend Matthew. We are both searching in our own ways…for all life has to offer.
Written by Matthew Morales and HastyWordsAt first the days felt so very long Torment filled in where you ended At first it felt like a desperate song It was never what we intended At first I didn’t know how to be alone It was never something I expected At first I didn’t know my own home I felt so rejected Left standing abandoned and alone In the developing storm I stood Left to save my own life I found the strength to carry on Left with no other choice I persevere Left with memories of the storm I live Left with worn out sacrifices And a pocket full of empty regret I lay my burdens down to be washed away And I cry not out of weakness or frailty But it’s strength I gain from all these tears It’s a new life redeemed without the fear
