I once knew a day
when some of us were seekers
but some fell along the way

was not that we were weaker
for our pain had us foretold
treading too close to the edge
where we had no grip to hold

and fooled that we would fledge
we set our flight on a liar’s hope
this nightmare did dream allege
was held on gossamer rope

what seemed forever dangling
I was upon that fraying thread
this noose slowly strangling
resolved this wraith were left for dead

after many a hardened tear
from battles heartache fought
the will to persevere
alas had come to naught

a mocking torment whaled
and a remnant spirit broke
so a greater spirit prevailed
for my folly to revoke

when my will I had no care for
it held me on its height
until my heart did wholly implore
for to take me from this night

I have but for the grace of
a defeated nemesis
just in perfect time came timeless love
an undeserved regenesis
