Looking for Freedom

The weight of the world on my shoulders

It may take everything I have

It may put cracks in me

But it will never break me

Tears may come

I will ask for help

From left and right – and above

And walk all over the enemy from below

I’ll never know how you manifested yourself in me

How you made your home in this mind

But it’s time to go

Time to move

Out you go

I challenge you

And I’ll take my mind back

I’ll take my body back

From the clutches of your painful grip

Yes, I shake in front of you

Yes, you scare the hell out of me

But that resilience – the one that has always been there will never be put out

Don’t mistake the fear in my eyes for anything but a disguise for the courage behind them

I’m looking for freedom
