Inspired by Bob Marley's "Redemption Song"!!!


Incubus


Confined, by words of judgment,
Commited, by visions of what you can only be,
Conscripted, to be the next lamb to the slaughter,
And condemned, to be spoke of like a future fool of old,

It is only a prison if you choose to stay,
It is only a prison if you bring it with you,
It is only a prison if you let it bring you down,
And it is only a prison if you choose to turn the lights off,

But eventually, curiousity checks in,

Light has a scent of anxious all its own,
Light has a purpose when it is visioned at first sight,
Light has a truth to it even for the hidden,
And light has no substitution or exception to the rule,

It is emancipation if your need is stronger than your want,
It is emancipation if you seek a new path,
It is emancipation if you choose to let go,
And it is emancipation if and only if strength follows humility,

I see a lot of people in a incubus,
And then try to teach others through an incubus,
But there is only one problem, curiousity,
Which triggers new, which triggers "seek and ye shall find",
Taught and re-taught,
Fear weakens with every baby-step,
And with every step builds confidence,
Naivity is natural and must be endured,
But through this comes experience,
You have to leave it behind,
Seek a new mentality,
You don't forget who you are and where you came from,

You become free,
You become brave,
You become a way,
And most of all, you become a pioneer,
Out of the incubus,

The dancer moves without a trace,

Breaking down the walls that enslave us can be difficult, but it must be accomplished in order to know true freedom.
