It would be easy….

To fall back in old patterns….

Stay with what is familiar and safe….

But I know where that roads leads….

Strange what becomes normal….

How our minds can be conditioned….

Going back to who I was….

Living in a dream….

It would be easy….

I have a choice to make….

Every day….

Who do I want to be….

And my circumstances….

And my past….

And my scars….

They can’t decide for me anymore…

Sometimes we choose the easier path….

Because we know where it leads….

Knowing the outcome….

Knowing the ending of the story seems better than….

Taking a risk….

Committing to change….

Embracing a new path….

I know where I’ve been….

But that’s not the place I want to go….

I want a new beginning….

I want a life of my own….

I want to be free….

My old life…..

My old habits….

My old ways….

Will never give me….

A life where I feel loved….

And whole….

And enough….

That road is easy…..

It’s worn….

I know every single corner…..

And roundabout….

And turn….

But today is a new day….

And I have decided….

That I don’t live….

In my memories anymore….
