The tiger growls within

The trail I walk will not lead me,
to the place where I must go;
I am becoming stagnant here,
Handing the chains of my destiny
To a stranger that smiles callously.

The door that searches for me;
Has found me, I dare not enter yet
Everything I love crumbles at my feet
I have no courage, nor patience to fix;
what I had broken by my own hand.

I stay down like a house cat
But the tiger growls within

I stay down like a house cat
But the tiger roars within

Every person whom I looked up to
Has now fallen and hides from us
When their crafted illusion faltered
I am left only with Nature and God
As my master, as my mother
