Embers

Once upon a time there was a girl
who dreamed to see the whole wide world.
But at some point she had lost her way,
and from her path she began to stray.

Searched for happiness in all the wrong places.
Became overwhelmed by all the strange faces.
Desperately tried to find the meaning
in this empty life she had been living. 

Then one day she felt drained.
Looked in the mirror, no longer sane.
If you asked her she wouldn't know
what she wanted, or where she would go.

Mistaken for peace she wouldn't deny
the life she had, but couldn't satisfy
the fire that still lived within her,
even if it had diminished to embers.

At some point she decided to nourish
the gift she had, the one she was born with.
The magic was unlike anything she'd seen.
The magic you feel when you follow your dreams.
