Iron Bar

I feel the heat, the melting of my flesh

And here I am, in the furnace burning my fears

For what life is worth, I am still alive, I am still here

I am happy now, escaping my shadows

Realizing the its over, that I am done drinking my sorrows

And from here life is a simple clue

One leap of faith and one step away from the queue

It’s the iron bar, the integrity of my soul

The need to fight the fight that I have to simply swallow
