I found you there, out in the cold
Wasting away, waiting to grow old
Your limbs were weak; your eyes were dull
A ghostly body masking a warm soul
I woke you up from your sickly sleep
I begged you to dig down deep
In dark chambers of your castle keep
Where roses bloom and stars weep
There is beauty; there is pain
There thorns tear into the soul’s vein
Winter’s frost burnt out your flame
And you’ve let it for the sake of shame
What deep, dark secret do you hide
That not even you can seek and find?
In dreams, it haunts your dwindling pride
It screams from somewhere back in time
Set free that beastly memory
Let loose her talons and her teeth
It’s done no good to deny her leave
Caged, she’s robbed you of your peace
Awake! O Soul! And fight for life!
To simply cling won’t satisfy
Hear your spirit’s yearning cry
There! It flickers! In your eye!
That spark that colors bright your skin
The world awaits what you have to give
It’s a waste of a life to merely exist
Only once, are you given the chance to live.
