Who I am now, is not who I used to be,
I’ve broken some chains, but I’m still not free,
Moved away from things that didn’t help me grow,
Now I have more peace, it was in me all the time, I just didn’t know.
I’ve been on a journey deep inside,
Found things about myself I used to run from or hide,
I’ve sat with hopeless tears rolling down my face,
But I didn’t give up, I kept running this life race.
Now I’m nearly always on top of the world,
Every now and then I get scared like that little girl,
Clouds of doubt try to dim the light that shines in me,
I just try to breathe and let the sun back in, that is my key.
