Lost in wilderness

In the 
shadows                                                                                                                  
I used to roam
Disenchanted, misunderstood
Struggling to see who I really was.

Tired and restless
All I could do is roam
Not believing
Not knowing
Not trusting the light to guide me home.

Like a whip I turned around
At last I have found
I am on my way heading home 
No more shadows no more cold.

With my feet barely touching the ground
I am at last home ward bound.

I roamed in shadows
My world was cold and grey
But now I feel the blue sky on a warm summers day
I feel the warmth of humanity day after day.

I was lost in my bleak remains
I have found my life again
The shadows are behind me
My life is for me to gain.

I am at last home ward bound.
