Freedom

I see the finish;

I see the end,

so close,

so close;

there it is,

my beginning.

The end is near;

the tide has set;

the way is clear;

to freedom!

Oh, freedom!

To live!

To breathe!

To see,

the Sun rise and set each day before me.

I have begun,

I see the finish line;

I will not let fear

keep me in their shadows;

my courage is planted,

and growing within me.

I was there;

broken,

empty,

spent,

but no more.

I made it through,

all their closed doors;

I am here.

Yes, I see the finish;

I see the end,

they will not hold me back,

I am on my way to the top,

I am on my way

to set myself apart.

No more pretending;

no more mistakes,

twice was too many,

for all these tears to blind me.

So close,

so close,

there it is,

waiting for me,

my own beginning.
