I exist not just in your fantasies
I am nothing new
yet you still have not discovered me
if only you knew
I am the voice you hear
in your mirror your eyes reveal
it sonly your delusions,
that try to conceal
now reach out child
take my hand
I am imagination
and I always understand

there blooms in you a seed
but self-doubt makes you fear
open your eyes
it is my voice you hear
in your soul a dream
begs to awake
I dare you to believe
faith is never a mistake

I am but you, dear
call me by my name
take a pen and write without fear
the words that I say
I am your muse
your secret power
use me and bring forth your beauty
this, now, is your hour…
