My heart, like a flashing neon sign
From birth, calling to those, far and wide
They take their places in line
To freely take what is mine.
Line up, line up, I proclaim!
Whether out of pain or learned behavior
I forsake myself to the brink of shame
Forgetting that only I can be my savior.
Unplug the circuit, dim the lights
Darkness to guide the way
Shadows fuel the fire inside
Teaching the heart to stow away.
Be a student, with silence as the teacher
Allow it to do all the talking
An avid motivational speaker
For those with the patience to listen.
Allow the peace to flow in and around
All that my heart is anxiously awaiting
Harness the reticence that flows down
Funnel it into my potential for greatness
