Culmination

Here I am
Staring at the man I used to be
Here I am
Staring at the man I have become
Remembering all the things I’ve done
All the battles I have won
And all the ones I have lost
I have fallen
And I have stood tall
I’ve had everything
And I’ve had nothing at all
Here I am
Staring at the man I used to be
Here I am
Staring at the man I have become
All these things that I have done make me complete
These memories in my mind that will never recede
I have been blinded by optimism
And I have seen reality
I have hidden my pain deep inside
So no one would see
I have watched myself fall apart
And I have put myself back together
I have won and I have lost
The respect of many
I have seen and I have heard
The words that burn my being
Here I am
Staring at the man I used to be
Here I am
Staring at the man I have become
I have crashed and I have burned
I have lived and I have learned
I have drowned in the abyss
And I have flown to the stars above
I have hated and I have loved
I have killed and I have died
I have laughed
And I have cried
Here I am
Staring at the man I used to be
Here I am
Staring at the man I have become
All these things that I’ve done
All these things that made me
Who I am today
