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.
