I looked at myself in the mirror today
I see the shadows, the mistakes for which I pay
But also I see a bit of light
And finally hope, with which to fight

Taking in this new-found power
Saves me from those who would devour
For now I'm strong, I do believe
And it's time to finally be free

The scars I bear aren't all just shame
For I survived, I'm not the same
Words will not express the horror I fought
But I finally realized my freedom had been bought

Being perfect is something I won't achieve
For once though it's okay with me
So with these words I offer farewell
Someday perhaps this story I'll tell
