Altered Dimension

Sitting a top a hill, accepting an alternate dimension /
Views for miles, covering everything that was covered /
The boundaries were only set by my own expectations / 
Wishful vision turned blessed reality through detailed investigation 

I swam and I swam through treacherous conditions /
Resistance spawned from negativity fighting my every stride / 
The weakness infesting my soul, Had me believe the cheapest way out would forever let me hide / 

As of this moment, a unique paradigm shift may be upon me /
Finding the exit from the ocean supplies the freshest air / 
Techniques, advice and tools, not always what they claim to be / 
All I know, breathing freely, I'll never fully succumb to the despair 

Could this be the eye of the storm, or the exit, from mass volumes of shit /
I live in hope, hoping to turn exhaling optimism inward /
Never 100% sure where the credit is due / 
Be that as it may, it's very pleasant not living surrounded by the glass shard...I continue onward bouyantly waving goodbye blue
