Forget, but Remember

Where do you run
When the whole world is your enemy?
Where do you go
When everyone wants to take a piece?

Who are you when everything starts to change?
Can you pick up the pieces, or will you let them fade away?

When is it right to turn and face into the light?
Is it really true that everything will fade with time?

How do you know that you're always trying your best?
Will you take the chance when resolve's put to the test?

Some people spend lifetimes searching for the truth
Others never look further than their narrow view

Indifference and ignorance befall even the best
Weakness is the point where you strive to be your strongest

So when the world crashes down
And you feel that you've been singled out
Just know that there are others all around
Who heed the same old warning sounds

Forget, but remember
Because to lose the memories
Would be a cycle that the injured
Are destined to repeat

Who will you be, when you're faced with a choice?
Will you hide in shadow, or stand and share your voice?

Forget, but remember
Because to lose everything
Would be a cycle you will enter
And spin as it repeats

Where will you go, with all the bridges burned?
Will there be a day, when you face the things you've learned?
And is there a chance that you ever could return?

Who will be there when you've pushed them all away?
How can you ask when you're the one who never stays?

Forget, but remember
Because you need to feel something
Don't repeat the cycle's center
Unless you're willing to repeat

Forget the pain
But remember the lessons learned
Forget, but remember
Just know that you've been warned

I think

that I already have enough unfinished books. I should really finish one before starting another.
