Walk in the Light

This day I deserve to walk in the light-

To breathe the fresh air,

To feel the sun on my back

Unlike anything I have ever felt before.

The chains are unhinged,

And I am now free.

This is something I've never felt,

What it is like to be me.

The light is scary

And I feel so comfortable in the dark,

But it calls to me

And same with this journey I must embark.

I inch close to the light

And my wings start to spread.

I am so afraid I will fall

Because of the thoughts in my head.

But this is my time now

I have to do this right

Because it is my chance now,

And I deserve to walk in the light.
