In My Hands

Somethings wrong here,
I spoke loud and clear,
yet no one else heard,
not a single word.

Could this be it?
All that I have?
Can I not fight,
or take a new path?
All that I've done,
and all that I am,
will be forgotten,
without a stand.

I don't want to be caged,
like a bird thats pained.
Let me take wing,
oh please let me sing!

Could this be it?
All that I have?
Can I not fight,
or take a new path?
All that I've done,
and all that I am,
will be forever,
in my hands!

Is this my only choice,
to sit here with no voice?
Quiet and obedient, yet sullen,
my voice long ago stolen.

This is it,
all that I've gained!
I did not stop,
I've made a new day!
All that I've done,
and all that I am,
will be forever,
in my hands!
