I have fought, struggled, and clawed my way out of the darkness. The pain I have felt has been well worth the effort. It has cleansed my soul, washed away the poison I have been drenched in for far too long. I was the one who created the darkness. I was the one who carried the poison along with every step i took. I had no idea what I was doing, and in my ignorance I hurt those who merely tried to help me. I consumed the light, I snuffed the flame. Yet now I am starting again. I have repaired myself. I can once again stand up against the storm. The strength I posses has been earned through the blood and the tears I have shed. The only way to honor the one who tried her best to make things better. It has taken time, it has required my own efforts to realize this achievement. I now open my eyes and see I am nearing my goal. I will not fail. I feel the heart beat of someone who deserves my efforts. The energy I have put forth was for me, and now I see this energy has its effects on more than I alone. The rewards are many. I welcome the next part of my journey.
