The Threshold

There are doors no one can open
until it’s time
And walls no one can scale
until we have strength in our arms
and courage in our hearts
I’ve rattled my cage for years
I’ve looked for locks
and secret passageways
and windows
for a glimpse of what lies beyond
beyond me
beyond here
beyond now
I beg you now…now that the door is turning
don’t let me be afraid of what lies beyond
help me find the courage to step across the threshold
to be what i know i am
