It’s hard to move forward,
And easier to look back,
Happiness is everywhere,
But still somehow inaccessible.
I thought I wasn’t allowed to be happy,
To feel at peace with myself,
Because I was tainted,
Because I still am.
But then I saw the truth,
A little glimmer of hope I had previously ignored,
Happiness is for anyone,
Anyone willing to fight for it.
So here I am,
I’ll fight the demons that were once my kin,
I’ll shed my past like a reptile,
And I’ll walk toward the light.
It’s coming from the sky,
That’s where I’m heading,
I’m heading onward,
