It's behind me,

I can't see it anymore.

I've pulled it off

and left it on the floor.

It was weighing me down

for way too long.

I don't know why I waited

I now feel very strong.

It was time to let it go

maybe I felt safe holding on

now that it's gone

I realize it I was wrong.

I wasn't really a part of me

I held on to it close

just like an old blanket

it was with me through highs and lows.

I have finally left it behind

put it down on the floor

and now that I am free

I can feel my heart soar.
