In The Dark

Shake off the folly of trying to make it,
Take off the shame of trying to fake it,
Trade off the part you persist to partake in,
Remake a world you want to awake in.

Turn off the light so you can see clearly,
Step up to embrace and enter the black,
Take a walk in the darkness to find your clarity,
Enter the labyrinth, bring yourself back.

Explore the places you have hidden the key to,
Take up the shadows like an old linen sheets,
The promises broken, the power you yield to,
Shake out those dusty memories of weakness.

Remember those times that you found it, or lost it,
Shake off your delusion; there’s nothing inside.
Send skeletons scattering out from the closet,
And take a look at what your mind tries to hide.

In the deepest darkest place in the story,
The inner world where you govern yourself,
Where no one is seeking Hail, Grail or Glory,
A warrior stalks in spite of her stealth.

Shake off the folly of trying to make it,
Take off the shame of trying to fake it,
Trade off the part you persist to partake in,
Remake a world you want to awake in.
