be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Alenn O'Shea
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So... get on your way!" - Dr. Seuss, "Oh! The Places You'll Go"

You sit,
You stare:
The fit,
The fair.
They sing,
They dance;
This thing,
This trance.
Lost within,
No exit;
A wall- you're pinned!
An angry fit.
A tantrum thrown,
A side unshown;
Explosion, darkness...
Exposure, confess!
Lack of explanation,
No sense of creation.
Brightness remains within,
As darkness tries to win.
This dance... this trance, continues.
This life... this strife, invents you.
Deny... retry; no escape made.
Lost within, you begin to fade.
A glimpse of hope: a long, stretching rope.
You reach, grab on, with no time to cope.
A mysterious creature pulls you out;
You have seen the sun, you have lost your doubt.

The author's comments:
In one time in our lives or another, we become lost in the actions of others... wishing to do as they do, be as they have become; in our transitions to do so, we become lost within ourselves... letting their ideal personalities take over. In the point at which all seems hopeless, and your true inner self is gone, a helping hand reaches down to help you up, embracing your true personality, and encourages you to be as you were meant, rather than as another has become.
