Twice Chance, Once Free

there are channels in these canyons
that echo back to me
as I drift away from consciousness
as I search for more of me
I thought I heard her call my name
in an unknown, familiar voice
or maybe it was just the wind
redefining my own choice

to run away
or to fall down
there’s no difference between the two
as they both gain no ground

for all it takes within myself
I’m bound by destiny
inhale
exhale
twice chance
once free

the mighty vastness of this earth
compel upon my heart
in ways that I never thought before
beckoning for a new start
I must take in her signs
in the ways she sends to me
if in this life my journey leads
from bounded chains to free

to run away
or to fall down
there’s no difference between the two
as they both gain no ground

for all it takes within myself
I’m bound by destiny
inhale
exhale
twice chance
once free
