After the battle has been won
And the blood washed off
And the wounds healed
And the tears dried

You step into life again
And take tentative, halting steps back into the world of living
And the pounding of your heart becomes thundering drumbeats
And you’re strides get longer and stronger and faster

And for one brief moment
Just before you lift up
You freeze into the moment
And look back at what you’ve left behind

You realize how easy it was to come so far
And your fears melt away into nothingness
And that part of you that felt like it was being ripped away
Snaps away from you at long last

And that is the moment when you know
That you’re truly free
Free to fly again
