BEING LOST

Being lost as I am and have been
I’ve learned to accept the impossible-as truth
Reality bends ‘round the things I have seen
Things I’ve done through eyes of others-spent youth
     Dreaming the dreams I now try to achieve
     Speaking the words I want you to believe
     Being lost as I am and have been

Being lost I’ve seen the unbeaten path
Miracles that somehow must happen-in time
Challenging fate you will first feel it’s wrath
Tries to scare you away then shows-the sign
     Dreaming the dreams they swirl in a cloud
     No one will believe them till you say them out loud
     There’s a good chance they’ll think you’re crazy…

The strength of the strong but destroyed ego
That says I’m humble but can’t let the dream go
Pulls me back in the cloud hear me say it out loud
Being lost as I am and have been
I know I can still make the dream come true-and soon
When reality bends ‘round the things I have seen
It will be just like I’ve walked on…the moon…
     Dreaming the dreams others dare not explore
     Finding the truth and just wanting more
     Being lost is how I am and have been
     But I love it.
