After Friends

I feel my heart beating again
The world is collapsing
There\'s no way out but drown
Until I realized there is an up to this down

I feel something changing,
Something writhing
It\'s my soul black and dead
Ignited anew by a flame instead

Changing as I change
Feeling as I feel
I am no longer the leaf
Destined to fall

There is purpose to my growth
Reason to my being
I am one of many sisters, brothers
Surrounded by others

Not held down
But kept up
They are not the similar current
So I accept something different

I am the sun
Ready to shine
Upon the leaves
That kept me so safe
