A huge ugly cancer has been excised from my heart.
A darkness which has pervaded my being for far too long
Is now gone,
Leaving my soul with a newness and lightness
That is indescribable.
Where lies and deception once thrived,
Hope and joy have taken up residence,
Bringing me a sense of wellness and peace.
The brightness of my future is blinding.
As I float on air toward that new adventure,
I look over my shoulder into that dark cess pool
Of debauchery and dysfunction,
Wondering how I could have survived so long,
Feeling deep pity for those denizens I leave behind.
I kneel before God with deep gratitude
For allowing me to finally see the light,
And for loving me enough to save my life.
