Baptism by Fire
Maybe this moment isn't about me.
Maybe it's okay that I'm not balancing life in perfect harmony
Or managing all the things on my to do list
Maybe this is my moment to serve.
Maybe my resistance to her running my life
I know this to be true.
But in my heart
I want so much to be me
And me alone
Which isn't in the cards
After you build someone from scratch
And birth them into the world
All fresh and raw
I resist so much because I think I'll never have a life again
That isn't about servitude
But I will,
This moment is about my own rebirth
Or my own baptism by fire
Where I walk
Step by by
Out of the ashes
Of my former self
Into something unknown
