"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]


In every story there is

Conflict, there is pain

In every story there is

Beauty in the rain

And every day this story

Is a double-sided coin

And every day this story

Is a dual-edged blade

And if I need reminding

Just wait for the next day

And if I need reminding

Just look at days gone by

In each and every one of us

There is beauty in this place

In each and every one of us

There is a better world to be made


The author's comments:

so technically this was written as a poem but i cant stop singing it. wrote this at camp(yes, camp was great, but no matter what mood im in my writing is depressing. consider the ending lines the product of being at a church camp filled with testimonies and scriptures and good will, and the rest m being my dark writing self)

we is all stories. we is all conflict and pain messes. we is all beautiful. we is all bad grammar sometimes. we is all able to help each other sometimes. we is all allowed to have grammar when we is trying a bad attempt at being funny and we is really bad at funny. but maybe that was so bad you laughed anyway.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne
