Final

Lost myself in a smoke screen vision
Unable to discern my common sense
From the blatant truth
Hell clawed its way under my skin
Finding foothold in my confusion, hatred, and selfishness
Deranged, I walked through the halls
Feeling lost at my utmost
Until I found a dark light
Guiding me inside a named bottle
Whose person I’ve cursed forever
I downed my greed, sickness, and stupidity
In a matter of mere minutes
The world began to haze
A grainy grey sparkling in my eyes
Until soon my captor dragged me
To a room where facing my wrongs
Is just the tip of my downfall
Ashamed and anger stride into the room
Looking at me in disgust, they smother me further
Until tears have lost their meaning with me
For months I suffered in my self pity
Wallowing in my own selfishness
Until love and light picked its way
Into my icy shell
Then I was flooded
With righteousness, love, and light
Nothing could ever compare to the
Joy that filled my heart
The forgiveness
Now I look into the light
And strive for I know
That this is where I should be
