A self built wall put up to protect and defend
Security blossoms
All aspirations live behind the wall
Trapped

A chance appears
A chance
Only a chance

The wall begins growing
Its shadow covers you
Fear of failure emerges
In fear you retreat

A chance appeared
A chance
And then a chance passed
A chance you wish you took
A chance that would have hooked nirvana and reeled it in a few steps closer

A secret remorse begins to grow
Thoughts of what could have been begin flowing
No longer willing to be suppressed by fear

The urge to be free prospers

A chance appears
A chance
Only a chance

The wall appears more terrifying than before
But the longing for emancipation transforms in to a demolition crew
The wall crumbles

Freedom
For the first time you posses your future
A chance appeared
A chance you took
A chance
And you have set yourself free
