Freedom comes to those who search
For within us all is the power to choose.
Some of us face the light and win
Some of us fall from grace and lose.
I stumble around in the hallway
Forgetting my bedroom is behind me
Wanting to forget everything about life
But there isn’t enough ‘drunk’ for that.
While I lay in bed trying to erase the day
A voice came to me
Not quite an audible one
But I could hear it clearly.
A path was lit for me
And in my most rebellious state
I refused to traverse it
Because I thought I knew better.
Tonight, in my state of indifference
Life isn’t going to get the best of me
The voice assures me it won’t happen
If I follow the path he lit for me.
