Like a calming wisp of wind he captured me. Always toasting to a bottle of wine But never getting to the point. Back and forth between the lies he told, His innocence confused me. How could he leave so easily? What became of me, so apprehensive- No longer caring what anyone else had to think, While my soul began to sink. I refused to keep all of that stuff, So I gave it all away- Oh, how it crippled me, I fell before I could serve my plate of apathy. My soul then burst inside my skin- Shackles pelting to the floor. 'Twas a new beginning Of who I really am. It's just like yesterday it seems- An abundance of sewn memories Found a way to break through my mind, Awake or asleep. God chooses each moment in our lives To bring to light so many things, Honest things- That pervade my heart, But amazingly have set me free. The cloth's been torn off from my eyes That for so long blinded me. I refused to to keep all of that stuff, So I threw it all away- Oh, how it crippled me, But now I rise again- In spite of everything. My heart can truly love again, Now that there's no shackles to bind my soul. 'Tis a new beginning Of who I really am.
