The Feeling of Feeling Unburdened
What are these bursts of emotions I'm feeling?
Dancing around my mind to an upbeat tune.
I smile happily for the first time in a long time; feeling unburdened, feeling pure joy.

I shake off the sun and keep smiling as the moon beams into the night.
The thoughts that were once muddled no longer torment me.
The darkness that once held onto me has scurried away into the shadows.
For now I am safe. For now I am free.
For now I am...
