This song was written in a workshop with people in early recovery at Emerson House in Cape Cod, MA. The format of the workshop allows people to gain hands-on experience with recovery skills like letting a process unfold and slowing down. It was rerecorded by Kathy Moser and Alice Leon and additional members of the Promises Collective.

Written by the women at Emerson House 9/2013

Worthy , we are worthy
Together, we set each other free x2

I'm just one person in this big huge world
Truth to tell I’ve been a good bad girl
Don’t really know who it is that I am
All I know is I gotta start again


Why do I always feel so lost
Don’t seem right to hear I’m worth the cost
I don’t feel accepted on the inside or out
Time to discover what I’m about


Don’t have to pretend I’m so tough
I realize I’ve always been enough
How simple it would feel
To give up all these sins
In the mirror settle in my skin

Musical interlude (count 8)

The skies the limit,
Let go of the past
My wings are growing,
Let this feeling last
