Finding the key
He’s putting his life in order
He’s not a kid no more
Took him a long time growing up
Through all the inner wars
But now he’s getting there at last
He’s climbing through the mist
He’s putting things in order
He will not be dismissed.
For many years a beast kept under
Will rot within his cage
He’ll seethe within with fury
Because of inner rage
But then one day the man looks in
And sees that blessed beast
He sees that it can’t really hurt him
Not even in the least.
He learns then at a deep, deep level
That the beast it has no power.
It be the mark of the fearful man
Who truly will not flower
He’s let the beast so cower him
That he stands there looking scared
Yet look the fear right in the eye
And the truth be everywhere
He must recognize his jailor
And say “Give me the key!!!”
Then he know it’s he that’s holding
The end to misery
He has to learn to like himself
That’s the only way to go
To bring those shadows to the light
And feel his life just flow
He must rest within his glory
It’s the only way to go
Let the light come into him
And feel that inner glow
Then never will these prison walls
Take hold of him again
Because he’ll hold the key to freedom
From all his inner pain.
