There is no going back

Didn’t think I would get this second chance to live again.

To breathe fresh air and feel so alive again like I’ve finally broken free from the chains so many have put on me.

No one is holding me back anymore, no one is noticing me anymore.

But I am a ghost who is at peace with the life I live.

Being invisible isn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

I found myself through all the ugliness and now I’m stronger, wiser and looking forward to what life has to throw at me next.

I’ll never step back down to the old me for there is no going back for me.
