"The patterns of the past, oh they bind!
Their memories heavy on my mind.
This is the way it's always been done!
Why would you unravel it? You should tell no one!
Why drag up memories from the past?
The hurt, the shame, the thoughts that last!
Why would you travel down so deep,
hearing the ancestors as you sleep?"
Because I promised to be the one.
I vowed to lift my face to the sun.
To stop the patterns & break the chains.
To heal myself, and reap the gains.
To free the soul from carrying those burdens.
To let love reign free - and of this I'm certain,
The power of love can conquer it all!
The power of love tore down my walls.
My heart is wide open for the world to see.
The patterns of the past - they end with me!"
