I wish you could see the world from where I stand,
All shiny and new,
Alight with endless possibilities of who you could be;
Food for the soul.
Open doors, that if you just had the courage to step through,
Would stave off the feeling you fight so hard to hide.
The whole world is yours
And yours alone.
There for the taking when you rise from this dark sleep.
I wish you would stop trying to fade away.
