Forged In Fire

I sit and often wonder
If this life was meant for me
Like stepping in someone else’s shoes
A discomfort on my feet
It just doesn’t seem to fit
With the things I planned to do
I’m moving in an unknown direction
A trajectory out of view
I can’t see my own reflection
I dont know who stands before me
I’ve lost what makes me who I am
An imposter has engulfed me
There’s no turning back the clock
For the things I’ve left behind
So I leave them in my rearview mirror
And embrace the change inside
For in every darkness there’s a light
And a calm within each storm
What doesn’t kill you makes you…
