Survived - Poem by Loree Adams

I survived the most traumatic thing
it shocked my world and I forgot how to sing
Forgotten the family who knows me best
but I still have to find the heart that beats in my chest

Although my world is small and my life is boring
I imagine a time when I will be soaring
through the worlds and places I wish to see
away from the people who want to kill me

Tied down I feel, away from the girl
the one who had dreams and liked life in a whirl
The one whose life she'd lay down in a song
somewhere along the way something went wrong

Will this boy, the one who holds me while I cry
be the one to hold my hand and stay when I fly
away from this place past the darkness and fears
away from the people who caused all my tears

What do I do since that person is me
the one that is hold me back from who I want to be
do I sit back and wait for it all to fall over
or do I try desperately to find my four leaf clover

What if my luck has run out and my time is up
will I wander around like a lost little pup
just wanting the smallest bit of attention
among a few other things I need not mention

Or is this just what it means to grow
to just let the rain fall and the wind blow
or can I change the way I feel
make amends, redesign the seal

I guess that only time can tell
but one thing is true: I will always remember the time I fell.
