As I Am


Can you see me
Can you look at me
Can you venture through my eyes

Learning all that my life is, was, or could be

I never fully trusted anyone
Never wanted anyone inside my head
I never wanted someone close to my heart

Without the risk there is no chance of falling, without falling there is no chance to fly

Dance with me
Take my hand, onto the floor
If I look a fool then a fool I shall be

I've played the fool for too long as it is,
only a fool never takes that first step

Falling hurts
Letting yourself crash, painfully
Worse is to stay static and safe,
to be nothing, never having lived

Love, I don't mind dying
as long as I had the chance to love
for without that hope life
truly holds no meaning
