Despair

I have been up in the clouds, soaring high with God,
I have been in the dark caves, hiding away from all my pain,
I have been lost in the forest, trying to find some truth,
I have drowned in the ocean, searching for meaning.

I have been to eternity, to the deepest pits of despair,
And I made it back alive.
Only when you've done this too, do you have the right to control my life.
