Go Find Your Place In The Sun

(Written 16 September 1999/2:35pm, Thursday)

"Beyond the sacrifices of the Body.
Necessary light.
I bend toward it and blow gently."
                                    -Patricia Fragnoli
How can I...?
The heat of the Sun
like prying eyes of Mankind
burns me.
But who cares?
Yes, I confess: This life's a mess.
Though, I don't want to die yet.
I trust, it's not yet time.
But desperation haunts me
like a thief in the night.
Back in my gloomy years,
I have thought of 
taking my own life...
But those times were all over--
still hoping so.
It's time. I want to live in Light
inside my dreams.
Never mind the outer limits.
I'll do it my way.
It's my life anyway.
It pains me to think
of the Hard Reality
that this world is one big labyrinth.
Many people lose their way
and waste away their dreams.
I share the tears
of the Human Soul.
With this, I intend
to conquer my own frailties
and lift up the broken spirit
of the outcasts.
One day, if I could find my soul
and listen to it,
if I could have a heart
and follow it,
if I could live to see the sun--
One day, I'll find my place.
