Free (a poem for the book Speak)

March 13, 2009
I am finally free
To begin again
I will never look back
No, never look back

I am finally free
To be me and only me
I am going to start all over again

I am finally free
I am now a strong tree
Built to stand up to any storm

You had me living a nightmare of haunted dreams
These dreams will hurt me no more

I am finally free
To sing to my own melody
To trust not only me, but others

I am finally free
The sun has set for me
The wind blows gently at my back
I smile thinking inside'
'I can finally breathe again.'
