Finding comfort in a song

This video has been my 'go-to' for several days now, the lyrics are so relatable and his voice echoes the struggles he's endured, still managing to show the promise and resilience we are all capable of.

Truly Inspired.

To me this song is a way of saying that no matter what you struggle with and how long you are effected by it, pushing through the sorrow is worth it to get to the other side. The grass may not always be greener so to speak, but you will find life in yourself where there once was none. Hold so strongly onto the fact that the length of your pain (though unbearable at times) will be something of your past which can help you to mend yourself and your relationships. Let it shape your character with empathy, understanding, and the appreciation of happiness.

Let the good times (however seldom or often they come along) be superior to the suffering, find strength in what is right now, and what is to come, instead of dwelling on your past.

I was tied, but now unbound
My head is off the ground
For a long time I was so weary
Tired of the sound, I've heard before, 
The gnawing of the night time at the door, 
Haunted by the things I've made
Stuck between the burning light and the dust shade.
I said now I used to think the past was dead and gone, 
But I was wrong, so wrong, whatever makes you blind
Must make you strong, make you strong, 
In my time I've melted into many forms
From the day that I was born, I know that there's no place to hide
Stuck between the burning shade and the fading light, 
I was broken, For a long time, but It's over now.

Yes and you, and you, 
Well you walk these lonely streets that people send, People send.
There are some wounds that just can't mend, I do pretend, pretend, 
I am free from all the things that take my friends
But I will stand hear till the end, I know that I can take the moon, 
In between the burning shade and the fading light
I was broken, for a long time, but It's over now
I was broken, for a long time, but It's over now
