BEGIN. A Poem of David Archuleta
Posted by MT on Friday, September 28, 2012
Cloaked in silence, to contemplate
Inspiration is born
A time away from stress and trials
Ties to the past are torn.
To live without the daily grind
Free to think anew
Plan ahead for what could be
With hindsight still in view.
To walk away evasive of
The shadows of the past
Begin anew with visions held
To see the future at last.
The view is clear with thoughts untwined
Looking straight ahead
Focused on a single point
Where inspiration led.
That path now cleared of fog and smoke
Was chosen carefully
This is where his heart has led
He follows faithfully.

David has said this is a time of new beginnings. It’s not only a new journey for him in South America. It’s the beginning of his future as a whole. He will spend these two years quietly. And while he will be primarily focused on sharing his faith, he will no doubt use this time to contemplate his future as well.
It’s a time away from the ordinary world that David was used to dealing with on a daily basis, a time for him to learn who he wants to be and where he wants to go with his life and his music. His decisions will be made without the pressures of the music world and without the influence of family, friends, and yes, even fans.
In the end, he will know that the decisions he makes are his own rather than a reflection of what those around him may want.
