What Is, Where Is

What is to stop you from reaching me
What is to stop you
What is to keep you heeding me
What is to keep you
What is there to keep you away
What is there to tell you to stay
What is there?

Where is the feel of compassion in you
Where is the feel
Where is the desire to keep it new
Where is the desire
Where is the hope to lift us from pain
Where is the hope from which we will gain
Where is it?


There’s a dream, isn’t there?
A secret lurking somewhere
I feel vulnerable

There’s a shadow hiding
In the corner of my eye, waiting
Breath abated
With a hunger never sated

There’s a monster lurking
Tangled, tendrils, lurching
It wants to hunt
But it just can’t

The monster is the fear of losing
A creature in your mind preying
On the agony of uncertainty
On the recklessness of uncaring

It eats away through the mantle of no care
It corrodes through that mask you put up so well
It is your doubts and hopes and fears
It is yourself that monster is

Pretending to be alright so long
It grows into the monster, takes its toll
No matter how much you run
It will catch up, it is you after all

No stopping you, monster
No running away
The only way to get rid of you, subdue you

To face you and fight
See who’ll see the light

Live Your Life


Feel free to oust yourself

Don’t doubt yourself

Feel free

There is no reason to see the world dark

To feel there’s no hope left

Feel hopeless

Don’t be afraid to be just you

Live the truth of you

Feel courage

No way to say life is easy

No way to go about it one way

No way of saying what you should do

No way of playing it right or wrong

All another can give is some advice

And all you can do is think through twice

All you can do is just do what feels right

All you can do is live your life
