pry apart your prison heart. there
is light at the tunnel entrance, not
so sure about its end. you must
search yourself for that beacon. let
your guard down. you'll survive if
not your confidence, and that too,
will be the test of the view. pry apart
wires, curtains, possessions. break
the barrier of insular emotion; I'll take
your hand and walk you to sunlight.
