Releasing this burden...

by Matthew Schut   May 17, 2012

Pain, guilt, disbelief,
I sit on the edge of my bed,
trying to forget that day,
wishing for a different path instead.

This burden has rested on my shoulders,
I have no one to blame but myself,
carrying this load for way too long,
not ever asking for anyone to help.

Now as I release this heavy burden,
I can now admit what I have done,
I got pulled over for a DUI,
a day that was not very fun.

But I have faced all my consequences,
and I'm putting this mistake to rest,
the sun is shining once again,
living life to the fullest is the best.
