Amidst a drunken dream I gently stride.
Exploring an endless dim-lit hallway.
When should I find an end will soon collide.
A most peculiar door; dark, grim and gray.
Are doorís of this nature commonly found?
For when opened I find an empty void;
in fact, I could no longer spot the ground.
As if the room had found itself destroyed.
Ink black abyss, what waits for me beyond?
Will this individual be lost inside;
or find myself beginning to abscond?
I think itís wrong to run away and hide.
Therefore, I linger near this chilling edge;
and muster strength for what will lay ahead.
With eyes shut tight my feet push off the ledge.
This body sinks as if itís made of lead.
Perhaps a part of me remained up there.
For when the void delivered me along;
I found the man I used to be elsewhere.
Pathetic parts of me that didnít belong.
Reborn anew I chose a new resolve.
To live my life with passion I decree.
May I never stop needing to evolve.
Relishing this allows me to be free.
