I close my eyes and look within

Traveling the road of where I’ve been

Resurrecting memories long dead

Treading where I once fled

Pain blooms and flows so fast

As if just a moment past

Familiar emotions start to brew

Fear and helplessness grips anew

This is what has changed my life

It cuts though flesh and bone like a knife

With a pounding heart, I open my eyes

I try to clear my head of all the lies

I must find my way from the darkness

Find my way to happiness

I lost the map along way

Finding self restores the day

Never again will I allow the pain

For all my enemies have been slain

The power lies within us all

If we only heed that little call
