I Am My Beginning

I am my beginning
My Halloween past
With its grim reaper
Who left a childhood slain
Has been purged
From my spirit

I am walking away
From what I have been
A tormented adult
Locked the secret
Of a young child

I am not looking back
To view the anguish
Too many years were spent
Swimming in tears

I am my freedom
The bonds that
Held me to my history
Cut by my hand
