I have lost myself in the void of internal confusion

The rights and wrongs of selfish fulfillment

The crystal ball broke along the way spewing

Its potion all along the floor

My eyes are glued shut to avoid flame

My feet will burn for sure as I run across the coals

But I feel the heat may wake up my soul

And force the issue I tend to avoid

Do I stay and stifle the strength I fought so hard for

Or do I walk the plank, reach into the void and

Finally understand myself?

The big bold world is out there calling, whispering to me

No better time than now

No room left in my heart for sadness or fear

Only enough to battle the demons and ghosts

I’ll dig a hole and shove them in

Wipe the sand from my palms

Click my heels and close my eyes once more

And imagine all the possibilities ahead,

No more planks, no more restraints

Only blue skies
