Recovery

For the first time

I’m starting to believe

In the possibility

Of recovery

 

It never comes easily

But there’s only so much

You can bleed

 

I had to make a choice

Between life or death

Happiness or misery

And I know

It will be worth it

There’s something out there

Waiting for me

 

Don’t try to drag me down

Just because

You’re used to seeing me on the ground

I picked myself back up

I’m standing tall

And I’m going to stick around

 

My destiny awaits

And for once, I’m not afraid

I’ve made my choices

And the rest is up to fate

 

I’ve spent my life

Fighting just to live

I’m ready to forget

And forgive

And though the memories may last

The girl I was is in the past

 

I’m taking responsibility

Now that I can see the wood for the trees

 

It’s all a matter of perspective

Realising what’s subjective

I took my time to be reflective

And recovery is my objective
