To breathe again

To live a better tomorrow

To not waste another day

Moving about in my sorrow

****

I Desire,

To rejoice in my accomplishments

To dance all the days of my life

To be free from these shackles

It’s a burden I can’t survive

***

Holding it all together

It’s almost impossible

And Hiding in perfection

It’s undoubtedly indestructible

***

I need,

A better life to lead

To run far, far away

And never look back

To finally be okay

***

To inhale, then exhale

Without any dictation

To be myself out of the cage

Let out anger that’s been ragin’

***

To breathe

In open-ended air

To live

How I see fair

****

Away from chaos

Away from this

I need my own room

The one I miss

****

If I had a chance to leave

I’d do it in a heartbeat

To get away from pressure

To just finally break free

***

Mom, I’m not a baby bird anymore

You can’t lock me in a cage and hope

That I will listen forever because I won’t

I love this family but I’m at the end of my rope

****

You need to realize

That I all I really need

And all I actually want

Is to be able to breathe
