As I lie starring in the darkness
I wait for a clear thought to come to me
Lightning striking through the windows
Visions of my life pass and I can almost see
I so adore the feeling of freedom
And to be completely free-
It’s so hard though when you can’t
Decide where you want to be-
I love my family I need a home
But still have a need to somewhat roam.
It’s not the darkness, nor the lightning
That astounds me.
It’s the people I love so
Who don’t care to be found!
If they could only venture without such
Not be afraid of the unknown pure ground
It’s that beautiful world that
No one dares to see-
That is so all around us.
