and if this is where i look back one day,
and point at time and place,
where the world as i knew it ceased to exist
when i took myself out of the race.
and if this is where, choices came clear,
and lifes illusions faded,
with barely a whisper reminding me ever
of a heart so helplessly jaded.
and if this is where, i took my leave,
and continued to turn away,
looking back id see the light
of hopes eternal day.
and if this is where it stops and starts,
perhaps then now id see,
that the painful turns in lifes long road,
were the truths that set me free.
