Free From A Broken Past

Chasing shadows
And broken dreams
Nothing is
Quite what it seems
Broken pieces
Of myself
A former life
Scattered everywhere

On the floor
I don't need them
I look in the mirror
A face stares back
One that is
No longer me
One that is no
Longer welcome
I turn away
Rise above its pain
Step out of the darkness
And into the sunlight
To greet the new day
Finally for once as me

And not who you
Want me to be 
I smile up at the sun
That just screams freedom
You can't hurt me anymore
You and your memories
Mean nothing
I am free from you
Yes I am free
