Reborn… Song 268

My vision slowly returns. Hazy blurs of lightning in the distance rouse me. Pain. Not just my body, which may be broken, but my heart hurts. I had hid in the tower for so long. I didn’t realize that it was my prison, rather than my fortress. I tried so hard to hold on to my feelings. My sense of self. My own ego was keeping me in chains. My destruction came swiftly with the storm. As my vision comes into focus, I see the clouds open up above me. The torrents of rain now barely a trickle. The night sky slowly reveals itself to me through the clouds. I feel like I’m floating. I don’t feel the pain anymore. I am reborn in this storm. The pain is enlightening. The bolts struck. I fell. I know where it all went wrong. The clouds are leaving my soul, as well as my sky.
