Uncertainty follows behind Every moment Like a shadow I can pretend it’s not there But my sense of control Is but an illusion My power stems from lack of reaction The environment will do as it pleases Circumstances of a higher power Mind of infinite abilities If we use the muscles correctly Maybe we can control more Shift and bend reality Transform our perception Redirect our energy Wake up from autopilot Life can be so much more If we free ourselves From the self-imposed limits The lies and expectations A neatly paved path Traded in For a rustic and disorderly experiment Is it worth the risk? To give up everything For the hope of something greater Deeper fulfillment High expectations Or false hope? And misunderstanding. Which path is right And when will it be too late to turn back?
