Taking the journey of a thousand miles
Begins with a step, like those of a child
Returning to home or breaking one down
Making either world turn upside down
Taking the challenge that long is awaited
Bulldozing through obstacles unabated
Loyalty valiant to some of the house
Struggling for liberty in emotional joust.
What once was a longing, a need, an addiction
Is now a source of painful contradiction.
What one house rejects and claims desire
The other beckons with strength in the sire
What confusion lay in the mind of the child
To remain in chaos, trust long defiled
The raping of faith, knocked down from up high
denied the dreams with nary tears in the eyes
Blame things on everything, never their own
In the mean time, for eons, one stands alone
Time has passed by, much time indeed
When the child understands for them, no need
Abandoned, refused, forgotten, unwanted
Should the journey begin, progress undaunted?
Should the heart set aside the anger and sorrow?
Should the child remember there is always tomorrow?
The escape hatch is opened, standing ajar:
Will the house be destroyed from the will from afar?
Will temptation desecrate the once sacred heart?
Is all that it takes is a short time apart?
