journey back to you.
Everyday, we go through life
We wear a mask and live with strife
A make believe that we are real
Down to the core, down to what we feel.
But in moments of solitude,
Even when everything is the way it should
A silent whisper speaks to us
Saying… this is not gonna last
A whisper so silent, so brief yet serene
Has caused us to feel something within
Fear, hopelessness, sadness and fright
We live in a tunnel… hoping to catch a light.
But we give in only to fear
And ignore that one little whisper so clear
We put on the mask, again and again
Only to yearn what was way back when.
We journey back in time… back to our childhood
Memories that all was just too good
And the longing creeps in, and so we think
Those days are gone in just a blink.
The mask we wear would soon unveil
The yearning that we try so hard to scale
So we live a life that is masked and a lie
We live a life… but inside we die.
It is never too late to live a life filled with joy
It takes tremendous courage to leave our ploy
But if we step up and try to be true
We journey back… you journey back..
To the real you.
