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.
