My Place

From far across the great divide
I see what it might turn out to be
Once I fall into the chasm
Once I finally find my place

Sure enough, the coast is clear but
I cannot take a single step
Strangled by a lingering stigma
Keeping me from finding my place
From far across the grand horizon
I see the colors of my future
Still too confused to understand them
Still too lost to find my place
But in the shadows of failed decisions
Lurks an energy I’ve felt before
I must trust my ambition
Until I find my place

With every sigh that i exhale
I dwell on what i could have been
Had I believed in second chances
Had I the strength to try again
If all to life is what I see
Then rip the strength right out of me
Until I choke on one last breath
And twisted logic destroys the rest

From deep within a toxic dream
I scream for life to reappear
and so i seek an absolution
Until i finally find my place

I am an enigma. That’s right. Photographer, writer, musician, model, mother, wife, ruler of time and space...
