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.
