Just a few years ago,

I would have ended it all.

I would fall,

And never get back up.

 

Just a few years ago,

I wasn't the same. 

I was not in the right mindframe.

 

A while back,

I would snap,

On any given day,

At any given time.

I would fall,

So far out of line.

 

I'm not like that anymore.

I will remain strong.

My life will be healthy and long.

I will move along.

I will shrug off the past,

Because it will not last.

I will be me,

And no one else.

 

Just a few years ago,

I would have left,

Left this world behind.

I was out of my mind.

 

A while back,

I would go whack,

And never be on the right track. 

 

I'm not like that anymore.

I will remain strong.

My life will be healthy and long.

I will move along.

I will shrug off the past,

Because it will not last.

I will be me,

And no one else.
