\"Everybody dies but not everyone lives!\" SuperChick

Let me rise above this
Let me find some peace
Let me sleep the sleep
The sleep of serenity

Let me breath
The fresh air of freedom
Let me open my eyes
And truly see
For the first time
Let me see

Let me taste the flavor
Of hope
Let me experience the sense
Of joy
When new delights
Are met

Let me cry the tears
That weigh me down
Every night
Let me feel safe
Let me look away
And not have to look back

Let me sleep
Let me breath
Let me taste
Let me cry
Let me hope

Hope for the day
The day when I can stand tall
And proud
No longer afraid

No longer afraid….

The author's comments:
This is about my insecurity. About how I am still afraid of my bed and my room, of my window and my past. Something dark happened to me and I just want to feel safe. Just let me feel safe and let me sleep well.
