sometimes it takes years
for things to become clear
through every tear
casting your own true fear

one day you wake
as if shaken by an earthquake
your eyes open to the daybreak
you realize what it is going to take

eyes adjusted to the sun
no more holding onto one
light as a feather
you can see much clearer
