Defining Moment


It's been a long time since I've been able to stand up on my own.
I can finally uncover the mirrors and look at the person i've been avoiding for years.
It's been a long time since I said goodbye to the substances that replaced the family and friends in my life.
It feels good to say it's been a long time since I've fucked up.
I use to be so apologetic, Now I can't remember the last time I said i'm sorry.
Can't blame my mother for the way my life has turned out.
She did her best for a hopeless case.
For once in my life i'm doing a 180.
For once I can look in the mirror and love who I'm looking at.
For once I can truly be happy.

It's been a long time

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
