One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.
Albert Schweitzer

Beautiful Disaster

I found God while smoking my last cigarette
Holding on to the chains that bind me to regret
Remembering all the things that I know I should forget
But all this time I failed to see the colors behind Your silhouette
I then opened my eyes to fall in love with first light
Shedding my skin from the last night when I died
And I will still hold my breath until I meet death
With every new day I awake I will die in this flesh
Giving life to a spirit under the weight of my shame
While everything turns into dust my faith will remain
Mountains will crumble and fall to the sea
Such a beautiful disaster I found inside of me
