All That I Do - Poem by Guarded Heart

At night i lay awake
Locked in my nocturnal state
My mind can't stop racing
As my thoughts continue their retracing
Of the events in these past months

I have left a home to discover on my own
Who i am meant to be
Away from the oppressing fear, that you
Are ever present and omniescent

I've come out of my shell
A bird out of her cage
My true colors can finally show through
I know i can acomplish all that i set out to do

The people I've met, and the things that they do
The clothes that i wear and my outspoken views
In what I believe and the love i profess
My turmoiled emotions and sin unconfessed

I've escaped from your murderess prison
I'm from under your ruthless shelter
And in all that i do
I've succeded, no thanks to you

    That was awsome girl! A tale of how you escaped someone trying to break you down, gotten free and now are flying high. YOU GO GIRL!
    Keep writine,
