The Veil

The veil is lifting
I’m left with sifting
Through the ashes of
My former life

No more drifting
Patterns shifting
From all the anger
Pain and strife

An honest look
At the toll it took
And moving towards
A better life

It’s been so long
Since I’ve been me
So long since I’ve
Been influence free

Face to face
With the real me
Standing tall
Resisting urge to flee

Dealing with my choices and
I give myself a helping hand


Be the friend
You always dreamed
It’s not as bad
As it once seemed

To Love myself
Is my new quest
And worry not
About the rest

Rested body heart and mind
Wrested thoughts from dark decline

Dawn is breaking
I must say
It’s going to be
A lovely day
