Leave it all behind

Scars are formed in moonlit nights;
Out of sight, terror desires a sacrifice.
All I have to live is one life;
Who am I that I can justify,
My whole existence?
Did I embrace it or waste it?

Well I did spend the majority of it wasted,
But leave your hatred at the door;
The old me is no more.
Parts of me survived, but I have changed.
I must restrain my rage and turn over a new page,
In the story of my life;
Itís time for a change.
Leave the chaos behind me
And search for a common way.

Times they are a changing,
So I must too.
But I am still here to wish peace, love and empathy to you.

Let night become day,
Let the darkness fade.
Let bygones be bygones
And embrace me once again.

Spiritually empty, seeking advice,
Wishing for a better life
And walking away from all I left behind.
Eternally grateful at a second chance at a life,
Without the vice that entraps me inside my mind.
