Eyes closed, toes tapping to the music that only I can hear.
I am here, alive again.
Free from what had held me before,
So far away from everything I once knew.
And I am happy, loved... Free.
Free from the demons that haunted me
In those familiar streets, the only ones I knew.
Never again will I run into my former self.
No reminders of where I've been, who I've known in the past- in skin, in anger, in revenge.
Never again will I allow that type of pain or addiction afflict me,
I swell with excitement, as you know so well, I am gone... And free.
