Imprisoned by resentment and shackled by fear, I am trapped by how I have learned to live. I am a prisoner of self-centeredness, chained by blame and excuse. I have become dominated by people, places, things, situations and circumstance. I punish myself with twisted thoughts and fictitious feelings.
My defects are the bars on my cell and my assets are the keys to the lock on the door. I have done my time. I am worthy of a second chance. I am ready for a new way of life and a pardon from my past. I forgive myself and choose to make the most of this reprieve. I am ready to be free.
