So Far Beyond

So Far Beyond

- by Lucy Hinton, 30.5.93.

Why work within a system – then die?

Why not break the chains and fly?

In my dreams I’m free inside myself

But in my consciousness my sight has been divided

And everything that I have just decided

Is cast away in favour of rationality

And now my rationality is growing

Beyond the walls inside my head

And I can see above what people said

To where I might begin to realise

What is me and what has all been lies

Even if I never find what is wrong or what is right

I’ve already won because I have begun the fight

To look inside and see;-

So far beyond to where I am becoming me
