It all started when I was three or four
Some children dream, some do more
Before my body fell into a stiff state
Incubus attacked and my mind would create

A nightmare awake
I would gladly forsake
My mother would shake me back to my room, awake
The night terrors gone
Childhood goes on
Kidnappers and Snakes a distant song
All along I was wrong ~ was I wrong?

It came again when I was 21
I bled with prophecy set by my sun
With the lights down the corner hit my face
I swear that was the moment when from the portal they raced

A nightmare awake
I would gladly forsake
My mother would shake me back to my room, awake
The night terrors gone
Childhood goes on
Kidnappers and Snakes a distant song
All along I was wrong ~ was I wrong?

    General CommentAll our problems stem form childhood? What is it that we each fear? Better yet, how do we find courage to defeat them?
