Never again will I wake to the days
that I have left behind.
And I don’t suppose I shall ever get rid of
the shadow in my mind.
I have journeyed through many
strange new places,
And seen many
I doubt I’ll ever see them again…
But never again will I doubt my courage
or my sense of belonging.
And never again will I doubt the peace
for which I have been longing.
Never again will I doubt my decision
to take responsibility.
And never again will I forget the dreams
that continue to live within me.
Never again will I see the world
the same way I used to.
But never again will I tell myself
that not all dreams come true.
