Rebirth (inspired by a treck through the woods)

by imlikeabirdillonlyflyaway

After years of suffering through the purgatory of guilt and self-hatred, I commit the act. I am wary, but I finally do it. I take a step over the creek of regret, and upon arriving on the unblemished bank, I feel a change take place–a heavenly kind of release–I am set free, and I begin my journey through the untainted, virgin forest of new life.
