Burning Bridges 5/20/13

I've lit the fire
And I've burned them all
The bridges back to a life
I never should have claimed
Seems like an inferno
Raging inside of me
Because there are things
I can't change
Wounds I can't heal
Promises I've broken
And people that will
Continue to hate the me
I was then
But as I read the serenity prayer
About the things I can not change
I know I need to move beyond
The pain I caused others
And the rage and shame I still carry

So I've lit the fire
To eradicate my past
From my future endeavors
And I pray
That no one
Was standing on the bridge
When I lit the blaze
