There I sat in my dark little cell
Fully content in my heavenly hell.
When in came a child with a little key.
Her smile was aimed right at me.
Quietly she worked as she unlocked my door.
Then left in the way she had come before.
Curiosity filled me as I slowly stood from my chair.
To the door I tiptoed, but no one was there.
I decided to follow the direction she went
And as soon as I did, I hit my knees and repent.
How long had I been in that chamber of mine?
Look at this beautiful world Devine.
It is full of sounds, and glorious sights.
I then remembered that horrible night.
That’s when I decided to quit living free
And built my little cell just for me.
But then I remembered more…
Something I didn’t see or notice before!
I wasn’t alone that dark lonely night…
Three little shadows encouraged my plight.
I recognize them now as I look back!
In fact it was a vicious attack.
I tried to change my mind with all my might,
But I lost to Bitterness, Loneliness, and Fright.
They comforted me with their lies.
Now I realize!
Closing my eyes I inhale.
Where is that girl who saved me from my jail?
I frantically look around to find her,
Seeing only a pool of splendor…
A waterfall of teal blue…
its deepness so true.
But wait…that’s not my reflection at all!
Not the one I recall…
No, this looks like the little girl who set me free!
How can this be?
