Once I was scared
A coward in a tin shell
I've come out of that cocoon
Now I have the strength
To smile, and say,
"I don't need you anymore."
I'm getting high again....
High on hope
I know better
I know I'll come down....
But I just don't care anymore
For tonight, just this moment,
I can smile
I can wish
I can do anything
And nothing can hurt me
Never again will you control me
I'm free as a dove
Everything's beautiful tonight
The diamond stars on black velvet,
Flowers wilted with time,
The patterned cracks in the sink,
Even I am beautiful tonight.

Thaks everyone, for the replies. I usually dont write poems so happy and peaceful...but it reflects the mood I was in last night.
