I stood out on an aerie of hope
Staring over a restless sea of wonder
Crashes of lighting followed roars of thunder
My masculinity challenged by earthly obstacles yonder
Sequestered in questions doubting my ability to conquer
Was I yet a man or was I wrestling with the sins of my father
Uncertainty grew like weeds at my feet
I was at war with a dark inside of me
The battle in my mind had been wounding me for years
Was I man or boy will I die and stay right here
I decided to fight and my answer rang clear
The sea became calm and my skies became clear
I heard my fathers voice whisper in my ear
There can be no courage without the presence of fear
