I had to take on my own
to find what I had lost along the way.
The pace was slow and steady
for I had nowhere to be.
No one to impress or
This was my time to finally find out what was
really out there waiting for me.
Even now as I am back and things
have not changed much.
I know I can handle it all being thrown at
me even when it hurts and leaves a scar.
I will still hold up my head and know that
I made it through it all at the end with some happiness shining
down on me again.
