F-R-E-E - Poem by Erika Peace

I protect myself from the outside so that it would seem i'm fearless.
I sometimes wonder what the world would be if there were no me.
I learned how to control that bull dog inside of me wanting to go free.
The darkness i have come accustomed to has gotten a hold on me.
The lord said my child you must let go,
But i'm saying you must hold on.
I don't know why i want to hold on to the things that are holding me back,
it seems i have grown to love the things that have been hurting me.
My mind is shifting in circles apart of me is sayin F-R-E-E another,
I want to go free of the sorrow i've had for so long.
These demons are keeping me in a place where i think i belong.
All i want is to be F-R-E-E but i don't think that will ever be.
