There was once a man I knew
dwelling within my dreams
forged from my innocence and simple themes
a kind hearted face
with a cathartic embrace
that almost made you believe
there is some form of good in the world
still whispering through the trees

He said boy

later on expect to learn
you might not get by so easily
but if you fall at any point, at any time
just remember you can come back to me
so I took off running out the gates
with the wind keeping my pace
but the further I go, the more I see
I have to abandon my old ways

so fast forward to now, where everything I love has grown old
I seem to thrive off of rainy night drives
and the fear of the unknown
and speak of the devil, he likes to revel that he's gone and sown
the needles in the dirt that pry at my foot
as I stand stripped at the side of the road.

but a calm comes over me
as the sky becomes the ocean at dusk
a Cerulean gradient
composes a symphony that I love
the stars are the notes
that I read by sight
if Keats has taught me anything
It’s that I'll follow those notes all through the night

No I won't

Go gentle into that good night

I may speak
as if I've obtained
Some higher plane
at which my mind and spirit operate
but all I want
is to change
to be the man that once appeared inside my dreams
all I want
is to change
to Break the circle and separate entirely
release these shackles
split my cage
I’ll exist
for more than what the world
