If I Could

Times of my life in darkness and fear. Times of my life causing pain and tears. If I could only change those years... I hear a voice in my mind telling me not to fear, That I will never change the past, but there will always be new years. New years for a fresh start, New times to make things right. I may not have the power to change the past, But I am surely strong and brave. I now want to break the chains that tied me Down for so long. Looking towards the Light. Leaving behind the dark and painful times. I may not change the past but I could And will change the darkness for light. For there is always a way to break from the chains, Chains that keep us doing wrong; Now I’m free to go on.
