Out of the Shadows

I took their identity
To fade into the shadows
Be one with the lack of light
To be out of any focus
I chose to be nobody
I’d never approach the plate
The mound at Dodger Stadium
They wouldn’t know my name
The world at large would not see me
I chose to be nobody
Because being somebody
Means that they are always watching
Waiting for mistakes
To judge me falling short
To have someone beneath them
On this totem pole of life
To lift them up by standing on their head
I chose to be nobody
To never be someone’s step
But…
Now I’ll take my life in both my hands
The purpose truly known
I’ve always been somebody special
For no one is here per happenstance
It is all meant to be
Each a vital cog in the machine of Earth
A purpose, place and meaning
I choose to step into the light
To be the shining light
Fulfil my Divine destiny
And none are meant to wither in the dark
Come with me to the glow
And find the shine within your soul
And let us radiate together
