Overwhelming light like snow
Fluttering in spirals around me
Impossible to explain or even know
Yet, it is all that I see
Beautiful flowers of promise seem to grow
So I rest in silence and take a knee
Numb to the noise, scrapping the show
Complete surrender may be the key
Surrender, but don’t go with the flow
Now I suppress the urge to flee
It takes a leap of faith to go
I am capable, I am free!
