All the years I have lost while you kept me imprisoned
Not just in my home but my mind and my soul
My heart you had shattered and left me with no vision
To serve you became my only role
Your disregard for my life
I had no reason to strive
So many beatings
I am amazed I am still alive
You once tried to leave me for dead
Does anything conscious exist in your head?
You left me to die on a cold basement floor
I could somehow hear your son say no more
Now you are the imprisoned, you think just for a while
No, your prison is for eternity
You are never once more to see my beautiful smile
I consign you to exile
My heart once again becoming whole
Just as my mind and my soul
I now have a purpose
I have found my forgotten role
Holding on to my anger waiting for revenge
Was consuming my life and the loved ones whom surround me
I have made my amends
Through accepting forgiveness I have set myself free
I am the controller of my new found destiny
Life is a gift I will savor in it till the end of my days
I am a complete person not just an entity
Life will open up for me now in infinite ways
