So you think you’ve got it all figured out

as the walls of your wrapped-up world

begin to crumble before your very eyes

But as your life is crashing down around you

you keep saying, I don’t want to start again

I don’t want to have to start over

I don’t want to be alone

So, instead of choosing that which

deep down you know, is right for you

you  desperately hang on to a past

that takes you nowhere

that only takes you down

This is your chance to turn the corner

Walk toward the light; the light that

has shone on you from the start

Only YOU have forgotten

where you started from

when you pulled up

almost all of your roots

But the soil of this garden

continually tilled through the years

has remained fertile, in the sun
