Los Angeles, CA

I am setting forth again.

I am heading South today, starting in Mexico City and then further south. Much has happened in these last 9 months and since some of you are not quiet comfortable with naked prose, I will leave you instead with verse in the style of Monday Mash Ups….

Be it no concern
Point of no return
Everytime I fall I Keep
Setting forth in the universe
Damn the illusions of redemption
And the hopes that held me here
With this hope inside of me
I will not defy what I would become

There’s nothing left to be concealed
Moving on a scene surreal
Sure as I am breathing
Sure as I’m sad
I’ll keep this wisdom in my flesh
I leave here believing more than I had

The paths that I once tread
Have all but gone
Only embers now smolder
Where bridges once burned
I feel alive and yet I fear
What may happen now
I know I can’t return…
Such is the way of the world
I can never know
Just where to put all my faith
And how will it grow

I have no restraint, no fear
watching from faces I’d assumed.
my purpose set. My will defined.
Give me time I will be clear. Given time you’ll understand..
I’d only come here seeking peace.
I’d only come here seeking me.
It seems I came to leave

A stranger here reborn it seems
Awaking wonders deep in me.
If nothing’s ventured nothing’s gained
So I must seize the day.

Have no fear
For when I’m alone
I’ll be better off than I was before
I’ve got this life
I’ll be around to grow
Who I was before
I cannot recall
I’ve got this light
And the will to show
I will always be better than before

Through my eyes stare into me.
I bear my heart for all to see.
With my face turned to the sun there ever standing still.
Out here, realigned…
