Embrace Insanity (Kisha Kana-Lafayette, LA)


"Embrace Insanity"

Embracing insanity
Won’t you come fly with me?
I’ll show you who you never thought you could be
Don’t listen to the sighs and cries
Their resistance is no surprise
Some just wait until the pretty flower dies
Hold me close
I’ll show you love the most
I’ll move within you like a ghost
Don’t be afraid of the night
It holds all the light
The soul within is bright
The demons that we face
Are meant for us to embrace
Everything is in place
There’s nothing to decide
Nowhere to hide
From the madness inside
Accept the dark part of yourself
I can touch that part of myself
Here we are together, nowhere else
It’s our fate
To hallucinate
In order to create
