Showered in Victory

I hope to be forgiven-
for I was not myself

but

I have surmounted;
exceedingly healed 
from the wounds
my mind wears
         (a gift to myself)

I faced hell head on,
saw sights I wish
were unseen,
with chestnut eyes
glaring into depth
freeing myself from…
           the ache of craving
           redemption

I outpaced my foes-
speed knows no 
bounds when it 
comes to regret;
transcending into
pebbled tides I am
at ease,
lost at shore no more

I’m sorry

worry not about me
and
accept my apology-
a mistake made,
forgiven through
empathy, 
and 
showered in victory
