Clarity

I now have clarity, no one can question my sanity
There are no similarities in our movements
There are no remedies to fix the past
I know the pain will not last

Instead of measuring my success in money or a belief in where society thinks I should be.
I would rather not measure my life in years instead measure them in the seasons
I will have a reason to be present
I will have a reason to live

The ghosts had vanished years ago, but it was only yesterday that I could let go of the darkness and move forward with the light
I never thought I would feel alive
I never thought I would see this sunlight
I never thought I would breathe in the fresh air
I am free to move forward with the recognition and justice by my side
I know I will be alright
I know I can move into a new season without the years following me
I am free that is all I have wanted to be.
