To The Dawn Of The Light

The wise man said just walk this way
To the dawn of the light
The wind will blow into your face
As the years pass you by Hear this voice from deep inside
It’s the call of your heart
Close your eyes and you will find
The passage out of the dark Here I am
Will you send me an angel?
Here I am
In the land of the morning star The wise man said just find your place
In the eye of the storm
Seek the roses along the way
Just beware of the thorns Here I am
Will you send me an angel?
Here I am
In the land of the morning star The wise man said just raise your hand
And reach out for the spell
Find the door to the promised land
Just believe in yourself Hear this voice from deep inside
It’s the call of your heart
Close your eyes and you will find
The way out of the dark [4x]
Here I am
Will you send me an angel?
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

If you don’t know this song take a moment and follow the above link and listen.  I think this is an underrated band most assume play nothing but hard rock. But like this band, if you look past my gruff exterior you will find I’m really a very sensitive person struggling to come to grips with a difficult past while holding out faith for a better future. By wearing my heart on my sleeve I am opening up myself to pain and regret, hope and failure.

With each trial I sense the benefit each moment brings, the value of experience.  Each pain and pleasure comes with a price that must be paid, each brings forth lessons in the passing of a mortal life.  As I write this I am listening to this song with tears on my face. Every note, each word brings forth a vision of what I am hoping to achieve with my sailboat.  A new life under the glory of each sunrise.

The dawn of the light came to me about 15 years ago when I walked away from my past lifestyle, the moment I pushed away all the people and places that I thought encompassed what my life should be, what I wanted.  I hear the voice from deep inside, the call of my heart showing me passage from the dark. I know I write about this often, but it’s what’s in my soul and my mind. I feel compelled to express my inner being to rid myself of the past.

My passing through this life has had it’s share of thorns among the roses, shadows catching the corners of my eyes as I seek a way through. We know not the best path, a perfect way amongst the pitfalls of our existence. No book or sage, no spell or vision holds the final choice, we must try to make the best decisions we can and hope for the best. You must listen to the call of your heart, close your eyes and you will find, the way out of the dark.

    1. Very reassuring meeting with marine electrician yesterday…all my assumptions were correct so I can proceed without the big cost of hiring it out. Just saved myself over $3000.00!
