Breaking The Chains

Rating: 4.8
I think I'm just starting to realize
My life has just flashed before my eyes
All my memories have flooded my mind
I realize that my whole life, I've been blind

Since I was born, I've been far to kind
But it's time to put and end to this daily grind
I'm coming out of the darkness, and into the light
I dreaded this moment, but now it feels so right

I'm climbing out of this hole, and happiness is in sight
My demons inside me no longer hold me with such might
The iron grip on my soul is no longer so tight
They struggle, holding me back as they claw and bite

But I no longer give in to the pain, I stand and fight
I can see the light, it inspires me, being so bright
I'm ready to leap into the sky and fly like a kite
To go beyond the heavens to an unimaginable height

This is a feeling, I have found, that is incredibly rare
The hurt I once felt is no longer there
It is replaced by a unwavering lacking to care
I stand alone and smile, as all the people stare

A mix of apathy and joy that leaves me unaware
Maybe I died inside, and have just been reborn
I'm not exactly sure, but I no longer feel torn
The bottoms of my feet no longer feel worn

My wings have unfurled and theres no holding back
I'm striking my chains with a relentless attack
My determination makes them start to split and crack
Raging with a strength that before I used to lack

The friction of my mind is forming light from the black
Today I realized I was wrong about you
I thought you didn't want me, but that wasn't true
Those feelings are back in my head and I can't argue

I never stopped and I will always love you
