Shifting_ Puppet no moreHigher and higher I risemy heart slowly floating away from despairmy soul gently gliding in the air...I am shifting... sadness disappears.The darkness recedes from within me.It's fingers that chocked are no where in sight.I am shifting... no longer cloakedI reside in light...As enchanting as the moon on a dreary night.Now an expression tugs at my face.It seems so out of placeyet this feeling I embrace.My wooden mouth turns up in a 'smile'?Is it really a smile?... now I am beguiled.Once wooden hands touch upon my lips,touch the corners of my mouth,touch my hair and... what's this?The strings that once held me have long since been cut.The stage I once danced on has long since been shut.I am no longer a puppet that performs at a whim.I am something different...something new and unclear.something warm and soft spoken,soft... yet not woven.Rising to my feetstumbling, but somehow complete.That familiar spark comes to my eyesyet not at command.I am something differ

Without my puppeteer's guidance there wouldn't be a show.Though constantly smiling with my eyes lit up like stars... my body would remain lifelessif in my masters hands it were never carved.
