Learning to take on a new life,
Requires breaking down walls that block my sight.
Always thinking I am in the fight,
Never understanding that I am running for my life.
How can I say I’m living while fleeing this way?
How can I say that here, running, I’d like to stay?
Building walls like trying to hide falls.
Tearing them down…standing quite tall.
Allowing others to see me truly in more ways,
Takes the sting out of those days.
I don’t need to try to please anyone today.
I am living my life in a healthier way.
It’s not that I don’t care about you at all,
But love tells me that living a lie makes it easier for the soul to fall.
It has taken some courage to put it out this way.
It feels safer to block everyone away.
But abiding courage has wrought the reward that I am alive and no longer stall.
Love will stay the course of time;
Love stays while I spin on a dime;
Love stays with me while you’re away;
Love stays the demons allowing me to play; …
Love shows to me that the degree with which I see,
Is directly proportional to my transparency.
