Leaving Childhood Behind


Leaving Childhood Behind (Cape Cod)


An incipient song ??

Themis
...//
Shadows of doubt formed after my birthday
I slipped away to a room here on the bay
Morphing my life again, another new beginning
Where the silence echoes a child no longer in me

Here and now, i seek to embrace my freedom
Even though i may be alone, but is that ok?
And looking out to a different sky will it disengage the child?
Absence is never the answer, i know, but it serves as my warning

I do not seek and do not intend to find
A calmer ocean or a sun that never will rise
Time will return childhood to my thoughts,
I'll move on and then forget him all over again
Moving on, i can create him all over again

Here and now, i feel i am embracing freedom
Even though i may be alone, and it is ok
Looking out to a changing sky it seems easy
Absence is never the answer, i know, but it serves as my warning
Don't ever lose the child inside you
