Inside my soul…..

For too long now, there were secrets in my mind 
For too long now, there were things I should have said 
In the darkness…I was stumbling for the door 
To find a reason – to find the time, the place, the hourWaiting for the winter sun, and the cold light of day 
The misty ghosts of childhood fears 
The pressure is building, and I can’t stay awayI throw myself into the sea 
Release the wave, let it wash over me 
To face the fear I once believed 
The tears of the dragon, for you and for meWhere I was, I had wings that couldn’t fly 
Where I was, I had tears I couldn’t cry 
My emotions frozen in an icy lake 
I couldn’t feel them until the ice began to breakI have no power over this, you know I’m afraid 
The walls I built are crumbling 
The water is moving, I’m slipping away…I throw myself into the sea 
Release the wave, let it wash over me 
To face the fear I once believed 
The tears of the dragon, for you and for meSlowly I awake, slowly I rise 
The walls I built are crumbling 
The water is moving, I’m slipping away…I throw (I throw) 
Myself (myself) 
Into the sea 
Release the wave, let it wash over me 
To face (to face) 
The fear (the fear) 
I once believed 
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

I am always happy to share with others why I got certain tattoos that I have….before you judge people that have tattoos, try keeping an open mind and remember that all tattoos tell a story.
