the universe imagined (or how we put it back together).
they were never going to let us be.
we had to find ways to liberate ourselves.
we belonged much farther than they were willing to let us be,
so we ran down the sunset
to see if we could change the way things went,
the way things were.
seems so absurd now
to think that we even thought-
it at all possible
that all was possible,
but we had to find out for ourselves.
they were never going to let us try,
and they wanted to cut our wings before we even tried
so we ran
as fast as we could
without looking back,
and believe me when i tell you,
we never wanted to let you all go,
but they were never going to let us be.
those ghosts and shadows would have kept haunting us,
and all our ancient collective fears reappearing
because you all were too much of a reminder
of who we were and how we were
when they were around.
we needed to start over and reimagine ourselves
in a whole new different world
where it would be possible
to just belong,
and have that be good enough
to just be
without too much thinking
even things like how we’re breathing.
we just wanted to be
without all the guilt and fear
we’d been conditioned with,
so i’m sorry if you felt we let you go.
believe me when i tell you,
we would’ve loved to have taken you with us,
but you just weren’t ready.
now we see you see,
but we also see
that it’s no longer us versus them
because we’re all in this together.
we’re all in this together and we are all alone,
and that’s exactly how the universe
needs it to be.
