Always

 

 

It won’t always be a voice

That shouts strength into your soul

You’ll need to, in conscious choice

Find yourself a stronger role

 

It won’t always be a song

That lifts when spirits are low

You’ll soon find that all along

From the quiet, how you grow

 

It won’t always be a hand

That helps lift you when you fall

You’ll find your own way to stand

And in doing, stand more tall

 

It won’t always be a heart

That bleeds common sacrifice

Until, in time, you can start

Seeing blood a worthy price

 

It won’t always be an ear

That hears all your strong laments

You’ll stand against inner fear

Find yourself in present tense

 

It won’t always be the eyes

Returning a caring gaze

When head helps heart to realize

You own all your future days

 

For, in you, there is a spark

Phoenix rising all ablaze

Your bright light can shatter dark

It is who you are, Always!

    This made me cry. So inspirational and moving. A wonderful reminder that we have the strength of a phoenix to rise above anything, we just sometimes forget what lies within us. Thank you, Brad. Beautifully penned! ❤😘🥰

    love the inspirational message – there is so much we can for and by ourselves if we just put our mind and body to the task.
