Sometimes it just doesn’t feel like 

A whole lifetime has passed me by  

Other times, I know it much better  


The trail has been long and arduous 

Repeatedly breaking the heart in us 

Every mile for an inch closer to here 


I’m not who I was meant to be 

Substituted by something ugly  

In a blink of an eye, of utter silence  


But one day I’ll come out of all this 

Leaving a darkness- I’ll never miss  

Transformed into something different  


I will dance on wispy currents of air  

And live like a whisper… of brilliance
