Author: Capricorn


A mist of depression surrounds my soul,
causing my mind to be confused,
my heavy heart does not feel whole,
deep inside I feel battered and bruised.

Wish I could cast off this melancholy mood,
brush it aside like a speck of dust.
Whatever I try does no good
continue with this heavy heart I must.

What has caused this pain to swell,
within my soul like a poisoned sore?
my thoughts so confused I cannot tell,
why my emotions are so raw.

I begin to shed a multitude of tears,
which cleanses my soul and feelings,
and slowly the mist begins to clear,
my mind once blurred starts healing.

There is a place within yourself
that frees you from your worldly cares

It took me years to find this place
come with me, I'll take you there

As you can see, there are no walls
and everyone that you will meet

Has a smile and knows your name
its not a dream, your not asleep

I say to you, this place in mine!
it gives me more than worldly wealth

And if you care, to take the time
You'll find this place, within yourself
