Strange TimeThere was a time I felt alone

There was a time I felt alone
When I seemed lost at sea
When no one else was close to me
My feelings not my own

It was a time of many tears
But most of them unshed
They stayed well hidden in my head
Surrounded by my fears

But now I find myself surprised
Calm that comes with ease
No gods no more I must appease
Just walk out undisguised

Perhaps a balance I have found
A safety in my heart
I no longer fall apart
Whenever I confound
