i think i'll remain a secret, thank you.

i'll bide my time.

you'll remember me when you need to.

do not look back.

go now, friend,

take your place centre stage,

recite your perfect words to the world

let them smash through the fragile pane of reality they all keep so close.

and though i will watch in the wings,

know i am by your side

the ghost of your anxieties

that try so hard to hold you back.

as a secret, i will be proud of you.

you broke the chains and found your purpose

do not stop now.


keep going.

i will always be here for you.

you will remember me when you need to.

go now,

fear not the unknown,

but the shadows falling so quietly behind you.

do not listen to us.

we will be find another.

You are free.
