Have you ever just wanted to walk away?
Drop everything, grab a bag and fling yourself into the unknown
Each step carrying you into your future
Each footstep kicking up dust and uncovering your destiny
Have you ever stared at the moon
hanging there like some mystical fruit
ripe and tender and just wanted to pluck it
to reach up into the galaxy and consumed worlds
swallowing entire civilizations
Have you ever sat down, closed your eyes and disappeared?
Your body fading as you sink into a different world
a world of fantasy where you understand why you were born
and you are special and your life means something
Have you itched to break free of this mold
and uncover your true self?
Have you longed for freedom until your insides bleed
and you can barely breathe for longing?
Have you started to walk away and then
The unknown too strong
the bonds too heavy
the burdens too tight
the people too broken
have you tried to fly
but drowned in excuses?
Have you felt so alone in your desire
So broken in your failure
that you sat down and created
hoping that somehow by airing out your fears
you will grow wings and fly
when in reality it’s just a mirror
that tells you the fairest in the land is waiting
but you’re too afraid to leave.
