Wear a thousand masks…one for every shifting color of the day. But will they ever be enough for anyone to forever stay? Endless games with everything to lose, will you be who they want or will you create a life where you are free to choose?

Trapped in smoke & mirrors, fear telling you to shut out the light. You have no more strength to run as the world turns sideways…confusing wrong with right.

I lay awake in dreams, once lost in a lie. Love taught me to keep fighting, for who I am, no one can truly buy.

Take back all my promises made blindly in the dark. Close my eyes in a prayer, the night no longer keeps me chained to a sacred mark.

Shame & guilt have no claim upon my life, I am more than the sum of my fears. Love showed me the power to overcome the impossible, granted me courage from lessons learned in captured tears.

Everything I am, everything I have…I owe it all to love. Every moment here, I thank the stars shining above.

All the false illusions of happiness, money, power, status, admiration, they become dust in my own hands. External validation, selfish intoxication always comes with insatiable demands. I walked away because I knew. All the riches of this world will never compare to…..the love & worth & beauty I was born to.
