I want to go there.
To the light I see off in the distance.
I want to go towards happiness, towards a better life.
I want to be that person who has joy and hope,
To live in the light of the promises;
The promise of purpose and plan.
This pain is not where my heart was meant to be.
This toxicity, this joyless muck is not my home.
I wasn’t meant to live life feeling defeated.
I was made to be triumphant;
And I want to be. I want to live my life in light and joy.
Light was always my destination, my home.
So I’m turning from all that is toxic and I’m walking home.
I am meant to have a better life,
Meant to live in the light of life, not the darkness.
The light is my home.
It is where there is peace.
I long for the brightness of it.
So I’m walking home.
