    Every morning I awake
    I get a little bit closer

    To breaking free
    Totally free
    From the shackles
    That bind me

    I’m able to breathe
    A little bit deeper
    And see
    Just a little bit clearer
    Laugh a little bit heartier
    And smile
    Just a little bit broader

    Hold my head up
    All the way
    As I strut

    Away from
    Your eyes
    Your smile
    Your essence
    Your touch

    GOING AWAY

    I like the measured one step at a time approach to healing that your piece portrays. 1poetsought:D
