I have emerged

I have emerged From the pitch dark pit That used to be my life and tale Cold freezing mud and slime Thorn-scarred , bruised and broken With nothing but the flame of hope Burning bright in my heart Fed by a faith that refused to die The chains that once held me Lie shattered somewhere in memory Of a cocoon that birthed my beauty
