my way to the path
of the righteous.
For I don’t want to fall back into the darkness
anymore for I have come a long way.
I am not the girl I used to be and every time
I think about it.
It always brings happy tears for the chains that used to hold me back
have long been broken and I won’t ever go back for it is not me that leads this life anymore.
I have never been more grateful than I was when the light came and saved me.
Now the darkness just can’t hold a candle to me.
The darkness is like a shadow it never seems to last long .
I smile in the light and I breathe in the light and, the baggage I used to carry has been left in the darkness where it belongs.
