Now what am I supposed to value?
my dreams, my future, my past?
am I supposed to hope for something,
realizing all I love from this point on
is who I decide to love, and what I become
is purely me;
to reconcile with the past, lay down
and put to rest those laws
that held me bound; where am I to travel,
now that I have no road, no beginning
and my ending only a shadow;
still a shadow, though all I've ever loved
has gone. I am lost, having fled my spring
to a forsaken winter, embraced gray dawn
and let go of brilliant cloud; I am a new beginning,
a plan unsigned, something fierce
and unbroken, driving my pathway
across the sky,
as surely as love
drives the sun.
