    Sometimes my emotions crash
    Like the overflowing waves of the sea
    While my misery paints pictures that the naked eye detests
    I'm the lone soldier in this fierce battle
    Fighting with myself for the sake of my own sanity
    I crucify my pride in order to resurrect my spirit
    Yet my spirit is filled with splinters from the overbearing cross I bear
    My weeping has endured longer than a night
    Converting the noon day into the darkest hour
    My tears have become my meat and sorrow my drink
    I cry out to my God and He wipes my tears, but not my pain
    Forcing me to find solace in my faith
    So as I lay my head on stone pillows and rest in restlessness
    I feed myself with hope
    It's then I rise!
