292 The Awakening [07 April 2000]

You were unknown to me
A stranger
Invading the peaceful ignorance
That was my life
Taking me from the bliss of the unknown
You crashed into my world
Like a runaway stallion
Herding me away from my safe holding pen
Freeing me from what was my benightedness
A slavery I was happy living in
Yet in my grief of the loss
Of my security
My eyes were opened to a cherished freedom
That had existed only in my dreams
That you had shown me
Was a reality
In my loss I see
I have gained
A world of infinite possibilities
Becoming as wild as you
In my beliefs
The mare to your stallion
Standing upon a precipice
That instead of seeing walls
Blocking my view
I now see
The world that lies beyond
The prison that once was
My haven
