A newly created song/poem.

Take me home.
Back to the black.
Take me home.
To the castle I know.

I was young when I strayed.
Illusions of wealth and fame.
A grand ill thought out plan.
Of running away.
In my eyes I had to run.
To take what I thought was mine.
A man with fire in my blood.
A man with an unfaltering drive.

Take me home.
Back to the black.
Take me home.
To the castle I know.

Arrived on New Year’s Eve.
Shocked by what I’d seen.
Thousands of people just like me.
They could play, and dance, and sing.
Grew up being told I was special.
Unique and one of a kind.
My heart was crushed.
I was sold a well meant lie.

Take me home.
Back to the black.
Take me home.
To the castle I know.

Adjust to a new reality.
Just another fish in the sea.
Accept I can be beat.
Always someone better than me.
Gave it my best and failed.
The story of my life.
Can’t claim a success.
But at least I tried.
At least I tried.
