I could always find an excuse
to do exactly what I want to do,
so why do I make such a habit of breaking each of my carefully laid rules?

Someday my religion will let me believe in
the power to change all my crimes.
If you do that, I promise you that you'll hear what is spoken inside.

And I promise you that when you hear your own heart
you'll stop in your tracks the moment it starts.
You can't guess the reason you're made or the reasons you aren't.

Tomorrow, I know, you'll be tired and bored,
done doing the things you are told.
Look through the dark interior of your mind and find your soul.

And you'll stand up right
when you see the light.
You'll run.

There must be some reason it's from what you stole.
At the same time there's a life line, what you're running towards.
Something for which it is worth, which is what worth is for.

Maybe it's the ocean, hands upwards and open,
born of shining spiraling spots.
The reflections of the clouds always twist within themselves like a knot.

Look I know how you chew on your fingernails.
I know how you only glance up when it hails.
I know how often you hear that you're awful and try to convince yourself.

But I suggest you stand tall
and stay strong.
And when you see the light, stare at it until it is gone.

Don't miss a second of its glorious arc.
Before you know it, morning will spark.
Before you know it, you won't understand why you were afraid of the dark.
