The Way (two years on the road)

The Way

You have saved me from my own confinement
From a passive, unmoving ‘I don’t know’.
From thinking in circles, spiraling down.
I had to go, and with conviction went.

You showed me how to be free and to trust,
To simply have faith in the good life brings.
Whenever we are together I sing. My wings
spread wide, now they’re no longer trussed.

Where I come from no longer defines me.
When I learned to be lost, it’s you I found,
And now I make my path up as I go.

You showed me the freedom in destiny,
It is my heart and soul to which I’m bound.
Freed from ambition, I naturally grow.
