I Will Escape - Poem by Samantha Williams

I cannot breathe, I cannot speak,
I cannot weep, I cannot sleep.
This world is my pit and
I will never escape.

It will not leave, it will not stop,
It will not grow, it will not rise.
This pit is my world and
I will never escape.

I try to scream, I try to yell,
I try to run, I try to jump.
This world is my pit and
I will never escape.

I will not give up, I cannot
Give up, I will not shut up,
I cannot give up. This world
Is my pit and I will

This will never end, I will never
Survive, I will not be silenced, and
I will never die.

I will breathe, I will speak,
I will weep, I will sleep.
This pit will leave, this pit will rise.
This pit will grow, this pit will rise.
I'll choose to scream, I'll choose to yell,
I'll choose to run, I'll choose to jump.
I will survive, I will escape,
I will - escape.
