Within my Hourglass

I dried my heart a long time ago
Like the sand falling on my shoulder
I looked around through a shiny glass
Where my world was darker and colder

The place I lived was full of sand
Every hour it turned me upside down
Pushing me down a tiny hole or
Piling over my head like a crown

Nothing had ever changed here
The moments always fell in a rhythm
The air was stagnant with a silence
And mind on the verge of a schism

The hourglass was turned upside down
The grains of sand began to cascade
I knelt by my lonesome pile
Lying so lifeless and scattered aside

It was time to come out of the shackles
It was time to turn a frown into smile
When the sands of time stopped running
It was my time to come out of this exile

I cried over a fistful of sand
That hardened inside my fist
I smashed the walls of my prison
With a new strength in my weakening wrist
