Hackberry Emperor - wildI faced the days gone by with silent sobs.
The sad moments flashed by in my mind.
I had been afraid of every future.
I had no faith that I can improve.

When I pray each day, a way out opens.
I can see the sky and feel the breeze.
I have left behind my focus on yesterday.

Now it is possible to grow.
I won’t give events a dark meaning.

I want to start the next chapter of my story.
