I've released the cross and now it's where it belongs

Walk with faith my angels

Love and hugs

MY THIRTY YEAR CROSS

Pain has many faces 
And, so many are still blind to mine 
They teach me first to work with pain 
Then I’m condemned by these same people gone blind

I’m carrying a thirty-year torch for my freedom 
And, as I walk away from this cross 
I will put it back on your shoulders 
The heavyweight that I carried is my thirty-year loss

Take your eyes and raise them to heaven 
And, turn around and look at me 
You make me fight hard for my beautiful life 
All your actions in the past made me a prisoner you see

I will walk proudly away from this thirty-year battle 
But, with a small bit of advice, I will give 
When you count how many injured people you took down 
How many torches you put out when they fought hard to live

Raise your eyes to the beautiful heaven 
Feel your weight on the ground 
Then, look me in the eyes again 
That’s the weight that I carried, from my thirty-year crown

I can say I forgive, you gave me courage 
And, for the last thirty-years, God has kept me alive 
And, as I walk out of my prison, across this beautiful earth 
I’ll have an army of angels steadfast by my side…

I don't know what this means - it's personal, I guess, but the writing is lovely.
