Now and Then

Hiding behind the mask
Of what I used to be
Running from the past
And all I used to see
The blindness of love
And the blindness of life
Challenging all I ever
Thought was right
Chasing the perfect dream
Hiding from my reality
Everything I used to be
So simple, so clear for me to see
Here in a world
Where I used to be me
Now and then
When I look back
I’m reminded of when
I was on the right track
So long ago
When I knew who I was
My future unforeseen
My life untold
Somewhere between the man I was
And the man that is me
I lost the truth of my soul
All the things that were just
Why can’t I just be me

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
