Today Is A Decision

Today is a decision that will go unmade
Today is an opportunity that gets put in the freezer
for some reason unsaid

Today was a lifetime that should have been lived...Instead it's a Joke, and only I'm laughing.
Today was moments that slipped though my fingers, filling my heart with debt to the brim
inverting my conscience through junk soaked sin
yet; a step I take..
-backwards, from myself
I decide I will be different
I decide to choose life
I decide to stop struggling in vain and in strife
I decide to let light be the goal
so step by step I leave the cob-webs behind
safe in the darkness for old demons to pine
small footsteps at first
but strides later on
I tell you today
that my old life is gone.
