A Passage

And it was in this place,

Year after year.

That I realised my place,

Was to rot right here.

That my true face,

Was veiled in fear.

That hidden face,

Hiding it’s tears.

But I broke the bonds,

I shed the cloak.

Free of those bonds,

I finally awoke.

To travel afar,

To be in your arms.

I travelled that far,

To make my new start.
