There are so many things in life I wish I could be
A fresh spirit with no lies, worries, nor greed.
Of course, with every wish follows a fee
and a long, firm path of uncertainty.
I am strong, stable, and up-to-date.
Rejecting specific paths chosen by Fate.
And with that, I look upon a brand new age,
where I am no longer set out to be another one's bait.
I have decided to clear out my mind at last
in hopes of obtaining the answers I seek.
I dispose of all that has battered my past,
and all that has made me feel pressured and weak.
I have been lost, confused, hated, used,
broken, separated, tattered, and bruised.
My heart still beats, but I do not know why
because with all the pain I've been through, I'm lucky to have survived.
I want to close my eyes and open them up to a newly painted scene
with a real smile upon my face, and a renewed sense of clarity.
So open the gates where Freedom is the key,
and let me control my own destiny.
