pain is not the destination
it is just a stop on the journey
I know you often go there
to the darkness, where pain thrives

It may be familiar there
You may know the rules of engagement there
But there is no lifting up there
So try hard not to linger, my dear

There is light on the other side of your pain
There is joy somewhere in the midst of rain
You have the power to drown the darkness out
Your life is not a tale of an endless drought

Pain is not the destination
it is only a stop on the journey
Regardless of its familiar embrace
do not be tempted to linger there
