Behind closed doors
I embrace the darkness
Reclaiming my wings, so I can soar
Home in a hell, I fight the madness
My secret to how I escape it all.
Rubbishing thoughts of pills and knives,
I paint out the dark, in hope’s hues
Suddenly my prison, unwalled, I arise
The voices, they quieten down bemused
Pain and hurt, I have fought in disguise.
The panic and fear, I control
Seeking the blank space in scribbled chaos
Ignoring shortcuts lest I lose my soul.
I patiently await when this will pay off,
Soon I will be out of the rabbit hole
Happy yourself, lost one, it shall be well
Break free, you can, from this imaginary cell
Close your eyes, Stand up to shadows
Fight out the lies, soon you’ll gracefully tread meadows
I shut my eyes, and find my space,
Where all I fear, I face with might!
I rise like an eagle, victorious from the haze
Breaking free, soaring up high as a kite.
