The road I’ve paved is rocky and rough,

The decisions I make are courageous and tough.

There is a beautiful light within my soul,

It’s been smothered with the weight of life by ashes and coal.

I pick my head up for the first time in a while,

Life’s crossroads lie ahead, sorting my experiences from life’s pile.

I see more clearly now than before,

I decide to make a stand and open that new door.

Knowing now from the rocky and the rough, that an end is simply a rebirth.

My light within is yearning to shine, courageously salvaging my soul on the crossroad of untrod turf.

Defeating the demons from my past,

I shall experience peace within my soul to last.

Crossroads lie everywhere within our life’s path,

It’s a simple choice, cries or laughs.

My once damaged soul is damaged no more,

I choose laughter now and forever more.

Beware of those with influential words,

These demons in disguise turn us into flightless birds.

Hold on to the ones that treat you right,

They will bring the laughter and you soul’s inner light.
