Now that I am here, I have a sense of belonging
I no longer stand out, I no longer have to hold my ground
Here, my stage is set, the path is lit
All I have to do is follow, and always follow through
No urge to flee, I feel a certain sense of calm
My nerves are at rest, I dont grit my teeth
I dont shrink away from others, I dont glance away in fear
It makes me uneasy, this new peace of mine
I feel it after years of turmoil and how is it that it yielded to me?!
I dont trust this feeling, I dont believe this peace
The silence of the raging voice, the eerie calm
Convince me of the imminent storm!
I have no support to hold on, no one to fall back on
I stand alone and even the ground wont hold me for long
The tempest will again ensnare me in my dark place
So damp, so murky, so cold it is
And the thought itself makes me shudder in fear
The fear of the onslaught, the fear of the unknown.
