The Afraid Can't Reach

The fires of eternity

Burn beyond the doors of tranquility

So many stand behind these doors

Afraid of change

Afraid of the passions of life

Afraid to turn the key

Long ago all the dreamers were strong

But, today it seems it's been far too long

So many eyes have become blind

Can't see the wind

Can't see pictures in the clouds

Can't see life in a song

So remain as the eagles fly

To move forward does not mean goodbye

So many worlds unexplored

Reach for answers

Reach for words full of hope

Reach for stars in the sky

Man, did you say a lot here! Having to move forward - to move TO something, sometimes means moving FROM something - letting go. The whole fear thing - fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of change, fear of stagnation.

Love this piece and it has sent my mind realing! A fan for sure.
