Redemption

Absolute darkness,

There's no light to guide,

No one to help.

Pure emptiness.

Walking a path of uncertainty,

Running a mile of pain.

Jumping from tears to cuts.

Blackout.

Redeem yourself from all that is lost,

And find new hope.

Put down the blade,

Wipe away the tears.

Find courage to stand up and fight,

To save yourself.

You have no guilt,

So put down the knife.

His eyes are powerful,

Don't look away.

The relief feels good,

And now I am changed.
