I’ve searched the world for signs of me,
since I was but a child,
but never found the one within,
who chose to dwell inside.
I’ve known my passion for the arts,
would someday guide my days,
and found the world a wonderland,
to visit on my way.
But never did I know myself,
however hard I’d try,
for I'd been locked behind the bars,
that others built to hide.
A soul which yearned to see beyond,
a female lacking choice,
to be the one created strong,
without a proper voice.
But deep inside this chrysalis,
no wings to set her free,
was growing strength to be herself;
what she was meant to be.
That tiny soul awaiting dawn,
the day I’d finally see,
the beauty hidden deep inside;
a song of love for me.
At last I’ve met this silent soul,
freed from me deep inside;
this woman filled with grace and love,
no longer needs to hide.
I’ve finally woken to a world,
alight with endless skies,
and I embrace a love so great,
it gives me wings to fly.
