It - II

And it took such drastic
Action to show me in
Lights of neon how
Wrong I was - my prodigious
Willpower kept me on
Tracks that seeped my
Soul of its life's being yet
I could not see. Blinded
By unworthiness that
Was not real and was
Not asked, I lived a
Lie in place of one I
Admired with all my heart
And I was wrong.  He
Never wanted me to
Work so hard, he would
Have wanted me to
Live with a song.
