Blowing In The Wind

shed the skin of yesterday
make a brand new start
face the winds of the future
with an open heart
the past held deep pain
I’d rather just forget
but to remember means
I never will again get hit
he tried to destroy me
but I stood up tall
in the end
it was him who took the fall
the drinking took its toll
and ended his life
no more chaos
no more strife
the future is now
and I will shine
because for once
my life seems fine
This if for all those who deal with domestic violence. Thankfully I have never been hit, but can understand how a person can be stuck in a toxic relationship.
