Well I’ve stopped being angry at the world
And blaming everyone else for my problems.
I’ve had to learn to be accountable for my actions
And accept responsibility. This is the only way I could grow.
I’ve done this to myself and I’ve suffered the consequences,
I’m just grateful for a second chance, when chances are few
And I damn sure don’t ever want to live in the dark again.
I’ll always have those demons inside of me, banging away,
But I continue to work hard to keep them locked deep within.
I was never equipped with the tools to accomplish that before.
I never thought I would be here and I’m happy that I am,
My only regret is that there’s no one that I love
Or that loved me, here to bask in my new self.
I’ve paid the price of happiness, but at least I’m out of debt.
