Break away from myself

Stopped in my path when memories came back
Stopped to think where they've been stacked
Stopped to notice the difference in me
Stopped to understand what I see

I remembered the laughter
I recalled the smiles
I dug out the secrets
Buried under the proverbial files

I found that album
The memoirs of the lost
Where they've been?
Buried under permafrost?

I saw a smile,
Unadulterated, unaltered
The beauty of my past
My perseverance when I faltered

Where have they gone?
How did I let them go?
How I became this?
What has made me so?

I want to be that again
The child in that album
Who danced in the rain
And laughed at every problem

Bring me back to life
So that I can smile again
So that nothing troubles me
And I can dance in the rain

I don't want to be a hostage
Of my own self
I want to break free
And just be myself
