And I shall fear no evil,
Whether you believed in me or not.
The time for beliefs are over.
I’ll lead myself away from this sorrow
And forget the heartache of your promise.
Discarding these shackles behind me,
I can walk on my own.
I’ll grip my strength
with stumbling fingers,
cursing with mumbling lips,
and find my own Shine
in all of this Darkness.
Leaving me to myself
was a dangerous choice.
I’ve always had the embers to start a fire,
Now this blazing in my chest is unforgiving.
I will use this pain as my weapon,
Sharpened by all of my fallen attempts.
I know I won’t walk with footprints beside me,
But my weapon will clear all the Valleys
that lay ahead.
