The mind is a mystery, as is life itself. It raises questions, brings answers, breaks you down, to build you back up again until you learn what you learn: to accept and move on...

A feeling wells up within me

I don't know what it is

I don't know where it came from

I don't know what it means

and where should I go to?


I unite with the shade

and draw back from the world

I fade back into lonelines

to search for myself


Even the mirror blurs

as I look into it

tell me, what do you see?

tell me, what do I want to see?

tell me, who am I?

tell me, what am I?


I watch the world, turn and turn

and wonder where it's going to

I see the time, running out

how much more is left?


I raise my hands into the sky

what have I done?

what do you want?

and what shall I do?

Can I get back to where I've been?


I'm seeking

for the answers I ought to find

I'm longing to be freed

from my chains

I'm waiting

for whatever future's to me...
