To live again.

Death has claimed me

Darkness closed on me long ago

But no more,

Will I hide in this shadow I became

Watch me build myself again

Watch me crawl up to my feet again

And learn to stand on my own.

Watch me learn to love again.

Even with all you took from me,

I have the Strength to do it all again

More than I can say for you.

I can walk down the streets and halls

With my confidence

No longer filled with the shame you created

I'm not broken,

I'm earning my stripes

And becoming more than you

Allow myself to look around,

At this world that stops for no one.

And I feel like maybe

I can still go on.

Death fall away from me

Light return to my dark body

Open my eyes from the veil of pain

And light my fire again

Let me live again
