Still Standing On The Edge (a conclusion towards an unforeseen future)

Still standing on the edge,
knowing I must decide.....
Should I move to solid ground,
or on the edge abide.....

I built a wall around my heart
to protect it from the pain.....
Although afraid, I'll take it down
and try to feel again.....

I'll remove the lid from the heart-shaped box
and let my emotions free.....
allow myself to feel them,
though painful it may be.....

Taking off this mask I wear,
No longer will I hide.....
And resurrect inside of me,
what long ago had died.....

Yes, the future is unforeseen.....
but to its snares I am not bound.....
I will step back from the edge,
and stand on solid ground.....

So I will continue on,
and handle what life brings.....
And trust when times are trying,
My Angel will wrap me in his wings.....
