I was invincible
Now I am dispensable
Adhering to the principles
That tender youth refused
My love is far away from me
And all that I had dreamed to be
Is but a fleeting memory
That I can scarce recall
A window near a closing door
I had climbed through
Before the floor had fallen
Had led me to an open space
Where my path could be retraced
And I could ponder once again
The inner child from deep within
Reaching out for one more limb
Before she takes the fall
In earnest after all
These years
