TODAY I CHOOSE TO BE FREE
Rising above pain is not easy
Our ego, pride trick us into pretending it’s breezy
Allowing our spirit to detach from it all
Takes faith-filled courage, because we will fall.
Events in the last 30 days seem so real, are but a mirage
Finding the core, an emotionally exhausting barrage
Wouldn’t it be easier to bury mistakes we’ve made?
Continue at 90 miles a minute through life, as if in a motorcade.
“Don’t analyze everything to a snit”
Voices heard, yet they are shouting from the pit
To risk being emotionally vulnerable
The worthy challenge toward light, is a test often feeling unbearable
We know we have felt this same way before
People and circumstances change, we begin to keep track of the score
It is not the first time we’ve been hurt
Cannot stop being aware of each, even with our face in the dirt.
Over and over the cycles repeat
Confronting them all, builds up the heat
Skipping even one can keep our blind spot from seeing the red flag
Could they really go back that far – to a simple game of tag?
Today I choose to be free
I saw the deepest fear in me
It had been controlling the decisions of my life
Over and over, repeating the same strife
I’d hung onto the false belief so tight
My subconscious Genie, making sure I was right
I’d accepted the job of protecting them
In a world filled with deceit and mayhem
Yet one by one they’re separated, lost
Determined to attain independence at all cost
Wallowing, threading through the pain and brine
I finally realized, their struggles are the same as mine.
