Looking back at how the pieces of a life fit together, the catalyst for change.

This is the way it has always been

Something deep inside me

Awakens with the memory

Of bygone centuries



Always a part of me

Who I am, Who I was,

Who I could have been

I was made by those who came before



There was always something

I heard whispers on the wind

I felt a warmth in the stones

Clear pictures in my mind



I explored castles, ran across moors

The highlands, that landscape

Always seeing in my mind

The image of a man



I didn't know the word dysphoria

Until I was an adult, too late to be fixed

I saw the image of who I wanted

But also who I wanted to be



A voice I've heard before

It was always in my mind

In another time

Another life



A song so familiar, so beautiful

It has been carried through the ages

Before my time, there in my younger days

Now I can fully appreciate it



The branches of destiny entwined

So close as to be almost touching

If only they had grown differently

An alternative path walked



A different road open before me

Another option

Than the one I had taken,

At this turn, at that. What if?



The soundtrack to my life

Only discovered now

It's awakened within me

The passion of the Reiver



My blood courses with life

Adrenaline surges, heart hammering.

Once again, I have awoken

Discovering who I am.
