I’ll never forget the multitude of feelings I knew,
Or the astonishing sensations that flew through my veins,
It was as a consequence of this new awareness, I grew,
Yet now alone, I strive to collect all of myself that remains.
All the pennies I’d lend, to know ignorance once more,
This reflection in the mirror, a girl I don’t wish to be,
The winds of change consume me, time to find what I’m here for,
With a shaky breath, I look into the haze, soon I’ll see.
With each step I take, each breath, my lungs burn,
Those nasty habits, little bullets I took for you,
Hard to believe it took so long, still it was vital I learn,
Yet even though I know now, the storm continues to brew.
Every struggle I’ve faced, the ones I’ve yet to meet,
I’ll take in stride, remind myself that I was born a fighter,
And if I see your face again, it’s a new me you’ll greet,
For the girl you once knew, her outlook is a whole lot brighter.
