Free


Free free free.

At last.

From the graves of my ancestors

From the burdens of

the past.


I walk down the golden path

With you by my side.

I no longer need

to hide.


Behind shame, guilt and fear

Oh. I see it so clear.

Your guiding light

moving me forward

Toward peace, ease, joy

No more need to fight.


Here, I can play

and laugh.


Who knows how long I'll be able

to stay.

Even if I leave, I know

it's never far away.

The destruction and devastation is done

It feels like I've won

These battles inside my head.

Even if for a brief moment.

For I know

There will be more ahead.


But for now

Let me tread

Alongside my new found freedom

As you call me ever

Home.
