Look through all these tainted memories
To see where I am now
Where certain ones still poison me slowly
As the medicine of forgiveness tries to counteract it.

I wish i can say that I'll be fine,
But I'm barely holding on sometimes
As the memories drown me
In my own misery.

So many people cut off
From the strings connected to my heart
Yet few still reside
With the poison they seep in me.

Wish I could drain it all away
But there would be no me
Without all these bad memories
That along with the good
Make me.

Ill just keep holding on
As the precious memories
From the light that support me
Also keep me in check
As I try so hard to not give in.
