"Here's to 22"
My life always felt like a puzzle
I found all the misplaced pieces
Trying to figure out what left me abused
Started off with death before life
Heard things out of order
My puzzles never lined up
Seeing that I was never meant to be like this
Granted with a gift
that left me feeling curse
Always seeing the bad
Feeling like my life is restarting all over again, but realizing that your mind has a great power to takeover
Only if you allow it
Finally finding the right puzzles, but now having to wait.
Life felt so raw
I felt naked
It still haunts
But I'm here
And I'm not leaving
Never again, do I want to fall down in a place where I know it's going to leave me in my dark forrest of my mind
Where the only answer is suicide.
And I made it to 22
So now, with the greatest gift I've been blessed with
And my own internal workings
And I'm going to keep seeing
Seeing where life takes me
Even if it took me til 22.
