The New Me

Failures and losses, I was all alone

Stuck in a corner, with a broken bone.

Darkness is a leech, sucking the lights

Dimming and dulling, every beam of bright.

Love and hope are birds, they flew away

Survive, they won’t in dark, can’t blame the way.

I look in the mirror, I see a shadow

Lost so deep, in the giant cloud of dark.

You knocked the door, you screamed my name

As a stubborn rock, you sat at the door.

Your voice guided the way, to the light

But lost cause I am, just didn’t move.

You broke the door, you pulled me out

In came with you the flew away birds.

Your light was glaring, burned the darkness to dust

I healed by the minute, like from a sickness.

Now I look in the mirror, I see something new

I see myself smiling, bright and shining.
