Here I am in my world
Oblivious to all else
These same walls surround me
Always enclosing
Yet the door stands open
I only need face my fear
And walk out of this cage.

Here I am in my world
Oblivious to all else
These same walls surround me
Always enclosing
Yet the door stands open
I only need face my fear
And walk out of this cage.

For most of my life
These walls closed me in
Now they are my haven
A safe place from the world
I can come and go as I please
No one to dey me my place
Here I feel safe

I want to break free
I want to scream
Don't tell me what to do
I'm my own person
I make the decision
Should I decide to hide
Who are you to tell me otherwise?

The same familiar objects
If only placed differently
I am out growing this space
As everyone does at a point
And yet, here I remain
Everyone else, gone, moved on
I am the only one left here

I want to break free
I want to scream
Don't tell me what to do
I'm my own person
I make the decision
Should I decide to hide
Who are you to tell me otherwise?

I will break out when I'm ready
It won't be too late
I'm on my own schedule
Don't worry if I hesitate
This is who I am
Let me be free

I will break free
I will scream
Don't tell me what to do
I am my own person
I will make the decision
I won't always hide
Don't tell me otherwise

Deep anguish and trouble portrayed brilliantly via use of simple words, but profound poetry.

Very well written indeed, Astraea.

Keep writing
