I am not a couch
     to simply be recovered,
or an old tire
     to just be retreaded.

I have earned the right
     and endured the pain.
I deserve more than drugs
     and a pat on the head.

I want to feel alive.
     Awaken to my dreams.
I want a renewal.
     I want a new me.

A me I decided who was.
     A me who I can love and
who loves the me I created.
     A new me to dream again.
