No More

I have resolved, finally, to fight,
fight back against those cruel oppressors - memories.
No more shall I drown in the flood, broken;
no more shall I lie down.

I have resolved to smile again,
and not that of a mask;
to let pleasures entice
and beauty inspire.

The crispness in the wintry air,
though harsh, invigorates;
I grin at the scarlet coat of the cardinal,
alighting on a bare branch.

I let sweet, rejuvenating music
fill my limbs and my lungs;
it drives me forth,
pushing ever further onward.

No more shall I allow our past, her shade
to haunt and hurt me;
I've locked that away,
met and rebuffed the ghosts of the past.
