I'll Be Stronger

The walls that used to protect me
now suffocate me.
Where they used to keep harm out
they now shut me in alone.
And although I try my hardest,
I can never escape.
My thoughts and emotions are captive,
held hostage by the very ones who were
supposed to protect them.
As my feelings writhe around
trying to free themselves,
they only damage me more.
And I sink deeper and deeper
into the grave I dug for myself.
