There was such an internal struggle as I held it all in
I knew I had to release it but didn't know where to begin
I had hid it for so long that I feared the feeling of free
What would others think if they knew what I could see.
For years I kept them all in and my anticipation grew
I knew they'd all be coming out like other secrets do
But What would i do then when the inevitable came to be
Would I surrender to the moment or run from what I see?
The releasing was so painful but now I am okay
For the memories of the past no longer block the way
Each day's a new beginning and those hurts from yesterday
Have become the stepping stones into a brighter way.
