Where Have I Been All These Years?

where have i been all these years?
snared by tragic destiny
tracing darkness, stifling fears
holding fast for all to see

what bestills a broken heart?
fractured from a hidden grief
covered over, ripped apart
only seeking sweet relief

who am i to hide behind
mask of granite, shield of steel?
battle-worn but not unkind
searching for a life that’s real

then it came, out of the blue
holy music of the spheres
transcendental, i was new
strong and open, no more fears!

where have i been all these years?
