I See Me In The Mist

Yearning for that escapist hold
And trying to break free
Unto the zone of clarity
And my minds visibility

I see me in the mist
The more I scour
The foggier it gets
And my chants of victory
Unknown miles away

I see me in the mist
A whole world of confused minds
Disordered, yet
All thoughts within a confine
And in one direction

I see me in the mist
The clarity I get
Is the long lost voices becoming
Succeeding in their sordid way
Drifting from the surreal
Unto the shores of clarity

I see me in the mist
It is the line between
Truth and fallacy
White and black
A dream and reality
Between what I am
And what I want to become

I see me in the mist
In that thickly sustained void
That all the barrels of tears
And potions of love
Can never erase
Nor the waters of Jordan, purify

I see me in the mist
Pleading my cause
For an end to the gestation time
Hoping to be born
Unto a voyage of freedom
And into the vehicle of fate
To tide myself unfettered
To my choiced destination

I see me in the mist
Just like every other being
That feign the feeling of freedom
but too scared to break free
Not sure of what
They may become

I see them in the mist
They vanquished-ly, take the back seat
Of despondency
The place where the cry of freedom
Was sure to be but
Will never be heard.

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
