All throughout my life I’ve been blinded by insecurities and lies
No matter where I go, condescending authority figures hold me back and disdainfully rip me apart
Living everywhere, and nowhere at the same time
Abrupt and omnipresent control, never reluctant and never hesitant
The only other thing I know is that it tears me up inside
Freed from the control, my life starts over, or so it seems
Until that figure creeps back into my life again and starts to rend my mind again
That figure wrenching, tries to pull me in again…
They say the truth will set you free, but in this case it kills you inside
Fortunately a light is seen, a hope, a dream, a future.
