Take me far away
from the confines that hold me down.
Release me from my own cage.
I am not surrounded by bars,
there is no lock that keeps me in.
If I dare to dream and travel beyond the untouchable clouds,
reality deflates me.
I fall deep beyond the depths of my misery,
and who will catch me then?
Regret is my past,
and it is my own.
Sorrow burdens my soul,
making it so dark that light flickers a dull, slow burn.
Worse than my sorrow or regret
Why did I stay locked in the cage so long
when I always held the key?
When will I learn
to catch myself when I fall?
Why did I let regret, sorrow, and disconnect
keep me from the fire blazing inside?
Today my life is awakened to a life so beautiful
I can't believe it's mine.
