A genuine smile stretched cheek to cheek
When she realized the haze that had made her so weak
Was gone from her life, thrown away just to be
A memory: undoubtedly sad but finally!
She could breathe once again, point her eyes to the sky
Absorbing new light, beginning to fly
Understanding her life was for her, and no other
For who could give up so much as a bother
For people who use you, mistreat you, excuse
The actions they place and then neglect to choose
Not her, she decided, to grin and let go.
Believing the best for herself, but to know
How disheartening and lonely forgetting would be,
What is meant to take place so soon she would see.
Overlooked and discarded, the memories would fade
She hoped for this as new ones were to be made.
Excited she was, to abandon her fears
And release rotten trials she learned throughout years.
With a confidant step she began to create
Her pathway through life, possessing her fate.
