I do have a million reasons
5th February 2018
I have a million reasons to stop I have a million reasons to look I have a million reasons to smile at I have a million reasons myself I have a million reasons to look the other way, to find an excuse I have a million reasons to forget what was, to forget what will come I have a million reasons to walk past you, to run the other way I have a million reasons to look for my own reflection in your eyes before I see your eyes
I do have a million reasons to think I have a million reasons that I was more important I have a million reasons because I was more important Important
because if not
why would I have a million reasons A million reasons because I want to be reminded because they remind me and I like I have a million reasons of myself I do not.know not.dare not. why If I think I hide the true reasons the true self maybe I do but I cannot and I will not if I could choose
the true self I cannot hide because if I truly look look beyond your eyes see beyond the smiles If I dared to If I dared to look past the million reasons If I managed to acknowledge that beyond myself was someone else someone else someone with a million reasons someone with the same reasons. If I opened my eyes If I closed them If I could see them would it make a difference? If I did not run past myself If I met myself when faced with myself If I managed to see the others as more than myself Could I help? Could I be part of it? Could I? Why? Why?
And then I opened my eyes And I did not see my own reflection I saw their The one that could not be hidden I realised Behind every reflection There was a light There is a light A light I want to be part of I realised That I have a million reasons to run away to run my race away from all A million reasons to run past the others to win on my own I realised that if I open my eyes I do not need a million reasons And there is no need to run Even if I do see the million reasons Even if I did I do not need a million reasons I only need one to not do so and that is you
