Like an Adolescent Girl Approaching Menopause


Song Lyric Sunday

It was years ago, after the rebound from hell, after stumbling around in purgatory, as I entered my unintenional five years of celibacy, that I was crazy about the girl band, Superchick. Their style was aimed at adolescent girls and had subtle Christian undertones. That must have been what I needed back in those post-divorce years. In some ways, I was like a adolescent girl, approaching menopause, trying to find myself again.

“Beauty for Pain” in particular helped pull me out of darkness and gave me hope.

The chorus is my favorite part:

After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today, someday I’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

Today’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday was, “pain.” For more information, visit Helen at:

  1. I can see how this song helped you through some tough times. I can see myself listening to it over and over again, just hoping the pain would end now. I can look back on my life and see that pain has made me stronger and I’ve grown and become a better person for it, but it’s hard to hope for that when you’re right in the midst of it. Great song, though. Thanks so much for sharing! ❀

  2. Beauty from the pain is a beautifully sad idea.

  3. Great post and loved the title!!! πŸ™‚ ❀

  4. It really is surprising how songs convey feelings in a manner that thousands of words in a book cannot. They strike a chord and hold your hand as you try to finally come out of the deep waters.

  5. I didn’t know the song but it is hitting home with me today. Like you I had an unintended 5 years of celibacy, and m right now in another period of it, so the song is very pertinent. I have always said “great beauty can be born of great tragedy. “. I believe it’s true. Thanks for the post, I needed this. πŸ€—

  6. I love how hope can sometimes be found in an unlikely place.
