the teacher

I’m feeling your pain - I’ve been where you are
It’s happened again - hear now, my guitar

It’s not your fault
Let your tears dry
I’ll make it easier on you
Trust me and try

Now clear all your thoughts, and breathe just so
Then recall your rage, and let it go
Realize that you are your greatest foe
Do this every day, and strong you’ll grow


I’m feeling no pain
No longer alone
It won’t happen again
I’ll keep full control

It’s not my fault
My eyes are dry
You’ve made it easier on me
Easier to thrive

Each and every day, is simpler now
And what felt like a curse to disavow
Now seems like a strength; I’ve been endowed
New power in hand; to you I bow
