Ray Of Light
Through pain laced fear I see The road divides here I stand at the intersection Not sure which way to go Both pathways look sinister One is a way well traveled by me The other a lonely and daunting path Both seem to share the pain That I feel inside Uncertainty weighs me down My heart cries out With a longing so deep I want to be happy and free But do I fulfill my desires Before my needs? My head screams warnings That my heart can't hear How long will I stand here Wavering with indecision Breaking vows and promises Or breaking my own heart No insight forthcoming Tears forming futility Falling unheeded by no one The anguish welling up Consuming my soul Slowly I shake my head Close my eyes and choose Silently praying that The loneliness will be short And at the end The darkness vanquished Gradually my feet move Towards the unknown Embracing the daunting task Set before me I harden my heart And go searching For my ray of light
