Forgiveness shines a light on the dark depths of my soul
Looking down at the handcuffs
That have created deep scars on my wrists
I realize that all along they were attached to nothing
And the key to the doors keeping me imprisoned all these years
Was right there waiting in the lock, that was never locked
I had always perceived the doors locked tight in front of me
As I moved to open them, the doors flung open and the handcuffs fell off
I realized my freedom lay steps ahead of me
As long as I left the locks behind
With a deep breath of forgiveness
I moved toward the light that had been waiting all this time
Just beyond the shadows of my own mind
