Itís Time For Me

There comes a time
no matter how old you are
the need to look into our own eyes
to know the soul
thatís hidden within
making us captives
of our own selves

This time has come for me
to grow up
let fairytale dreams
keep resting where they are
face the truth of life
Iíve denied in many ways
for a very very long time

Listen to the voice of reason
whispering in silence
stop chasing wants
that I already have
right here
in my own space of reality

wonít tell lies
I have made choices
that were mistakes
they changed me to become
who no one knew
not even me
but I made them
corrected what I could
some will forever haunt me
their damage
canít be undone

Iíve realized something
I must do for me
that is to see my blessings
opening shutters
letting light into my heart

Close my mind
of wishes that will never be
stoped makeing wishes
on faded stars

Cause you see
somethings in life
were never meant to be
when we hold on to
expired dreams of hope
of yesterday
we tend to stop living
and leave moments of today
be inexperienced

Blessings lost thru time
with no chance of returning
due to greedy choices
