If you find yourself lost in the dark, would you do something to get found again?
I had a dream and I saw this face
With big black eyes watching completely
Her face is pale, complexion is light
Her lips are red and cheeks so rosy
But suddenly, I was asking "Who is she?"
I think I should know
Before all will ebb to curiosity
This lady with a visage so happy
My feelings tell me, I'm still a distant away
But reality speaks I'm getting nearer to discovery
Then it struck me, this aberrant face all along
Is a face I knew for so long
Oh yes! This is me! This is me?
But there's something so different, what can it be?
Okay! I get it, I get it already
I am no longer the person I was supposed to be
In this rabid world I see,
I don't want to be trapped, don't want to stay
But it will be evitable if I can move along
So I woke up and told myself to veer away

I loved the way you used the symbolism portayed in a dream to help out with a real life situation.
