The corner’s turned, the lights are on,
the fear’s faced, and the terror’s gone.
At least for now, the way is clear
to find the meaning and know the cheer.
Cheer of living, filled with peace
knowing struggle can now cease.
Oh, but once, just yesterday,
the path was closed. There was no way.
No way to rise above the pain
or find the faith to start again.
But then the lights came on inside
and you found there was no need to hide.
You stuck my head outside the door
to see if you could face some more.
Then you saw, in light so bright,
it was inside you held your fright.
The world outside was still the same,
but now you knew more of the game.
Just hold on tight and don’t get scared.
You’ll only face what you have dared.
Dared to know, down deep inside,
the fears from which you shall not hide.
For what you fear becomes a trap,
without a compass or a map.
It’s only when you know your fear
the doorway out becomes more clear.
When you emerge out from that door
you will be changed down to the core.
Deep within, your lessons lie.
You can’t avoid them, though you try.
As you begin your quest for peace
you know the journey shall not cease.
But now your Soul can shine its light
upon your path, and on your plight.
The light of Soul will help you see
how you can feel that you are free.
When you have learned what you must know,
You’ll find the way to where you’ll go.
Then you can take all you have learned
to find the passage you have earned.
This passage leads to life on earth
filled with promise of rebirth.
