You’d want to encase me, keep me wrapped within the familiar warm walls you’ve built for us,
But for now, lemme begin by stepping out of your secure frontiers,
Unshielded, unprotected, inexperienced and wild,
Lemme begin by tracing the path I want to travel in,
Finding my own spark, searching for the fire within,
Being all that I’d ever desire –
Burnt, beautiful and blithesome,
Lilting away to the tunes of my own anthem.
