Rationalization to Realization

Once a tragic confinement was all around me
Snuffed out of all true feelings and thought
A drone of everyday slipping
silently through life

I walked westward one night through the hills of wonder
and pondered freedom
Outreached my mind and soul
one step further into the light

A journey that led me
Seeping thoughts of new
Breathing in new senses
Somewhat dizzy from not knowing

Awakened from a sleep unaware I was never dreaming
Somehow now sitting silently with myself
Contentment, freedom, self-worth?

Illuminated by self-expression
Unmasked of all sorrow
Inspired by tomorrow

Unclaimed youth in motion
Life through my eyes an adventure
