Barely conscious Or hardly caring which way I face the World, I take a bolder step, Traveling steadily Against the wind That is sometimes too strong, An air so cold sometimes That it numbs my senses Until I feel myself Turned inside out!
II try to keep the direction I have set for So that somehow, I will arrive somewhere As I know the path I have followed Has brought me To a better place, A freer state of mind Where I will truly Become myself!

MY TOTAL ECLIPSED HEART
Suddenly I was lost Navigating in the dark And I really thought That it was the end Of everything as it exists!
Unfounded were my fears And invisible my tears When I am the Sun and You are the Moon!
In a matter of a short time I clearly realized that it was Just a total eclipse Of my tormented heart!
The shadow disappeared And the sunlight came back, No more reasons for fears But time to relax and laugh!
