The End of a Beginning

Another day ended; another step taken
Yet something feels different this time
Pains of the past release their hold
As the black wounds on my heart
Fade to become gray scars

The fear in my spirit has vanished
Despair has no place in my soul
I have stumbled out of the darkness
Into a light so warm and comforting
That all of my worries have fled

The violent storms have been calmed
Although the questions still remain
There are countless days to find the answers
With this new sense of euphoria
I will never feel lonely again
