Here I am stuck in this steel cage
Imprisoned endlessly by someone else’s rage
I have been broken once, I am broken yet again
Will the pain cease? Will the aching end?
I am a bird that is grounded and cannot lift to fly
I continue to ask the same question, one simple word, why?
My world stopped turning that one fateful night
The blackness is victorious, I can no longer see the light
Living in my head is not an easy place to be
I want to dream peacefully, I want to be free
My heart is shattered to bits and beyond all repair
My soul is now consumed with nothing but despair
The ferocious patterns linger, the thoughts continue to race
I have disappointed many, I am nothing but a disgrace
I want to be free, I want to learn to fly
Belief is all I need, I’m pleading with myself to try
