Note: Don't search for meaning in this. That is the only way to find it.
‘Tis only a moment that sets it off,
Is it a look, a thought, a feeling, or glance?
Maybe a smile, or perhaps a scoff,
Is it destiny, or is it just chance?
Inspiration is found in an instant,
Though ‘tis often just out of reach,
Is it because you're forever hesitant?
Or is it that way with each?
And when there is a knock on that door,
Just when silence you’d become used to,
Why does your heart sink, and not soar?
Why do you doubt if your dreams will come true?
Don’t stay within a cage,
And naivety is not a sin,
Your innocence is not a hostage,
Of your mistakes, or someone else’s whim.
The strange disconnect connects you,
Keeping distant is your intimacy,
What you crave is understood by only a few,
Is it just joy, or is it pure ecstasy?
When you can feel it in your soul,
Who can tell you it’s not true?
If it brings a smile, makes you whole,
Why even wish that they too knew?
