Until I did

I never thought that I have been through hell

Until I got out and turned around

Broken bottles scattered around the floor

Hidden feelings

Crude humor to conceal the pain, the hate, the anger


I never knew I survived life without them

Until I turned around


I never believed I survived myself

Until I turned around


I never saw myself this ahead

Until I saw the view from the mountains I climbed


I never envisioned myself at peace

Until I closed my eyes and no tears came out


I never thought I could

Until I did
