Who am i?


All this time you thought you knew
your entire life was mapped
But you ran aground on a reef of sorrow
Back to reality you were slapped.

The ship you steered was full of holes,
And it sank without a trace
"Who am I?" you screamed at the sky
And longed for an embrace.

Time alone is what it takes
To find yourself again
That and others that know the score
Can help you with this pain.

So alone you sit and scour the net
For something to catch your eye
This is it! you've found yourself!
The voice screamed back from the sky.

you return and return, again and again
Surely this can't be true
But what's inside you can't ignore
This really IS for you

your skin it prickles as you read
Of O/others and T/their lives
you look in the mirror and you know it's true
you can see it in your eyes

The dreams you dream at night and day
Wake you in a sweat
My god whats coming over me
you ask but all you get

Is a need to quench a mighty desire
To follow along this path
To dream some more of what you want
While you lay back in the bath.
