Don’t become that
By burning out
The fire is a hard story to tell
Even harder to live through
Everybody suffered then
And now because
The trauma doesn’t go away yesterday

It’s alive in our minds and hearts
That’s a hard story to tell
Not wanting to upset folks
Well from my point of view
Folks should be upset

The point of your film
Should be to show that
And then the creativity
Dealing with the eternal grief

If you show just a suggestion
Of how the heart might mend
Moving on to a new interpretation
Of our oh so temporary lives

You will have done
A very good job
Raising consciousness
Challenging perceptions
And I’ll be the first to say
Well done mate
You did it with such great heart!
