Imagine my dismay
When I awoke today
To find that I had
Misplaced my passion

Trapped in my own desires
My childhood dreams
Had become my prison
I wanted escape
From it all . . .

Run from responsibilities
Hide from friends
Vacation from work
Give up the charity work
Abandon the "sacred union"
Even hide from God

It all seemed like such a burden
Blessings and all
Nowhere to run
Obligations burning
Bright as the sun

Where did it go
That fire in my soul?
Why do I feel so
Out of control?
Do I even believe
In a soul?

And, who is this stranger in the mirror?
