Words are like keys if you choose them right, they can open any heart and shut any mouth.

Shrouded in darkness

People stripped me of anything good

Twisted me into a monster

And I heard it all

I’d hide, struggling not to make a sound

While I helplessly sobbed

So that they wouldn’t hear

And know that they had won

I became overshadowed with hatred for myself

For the truth in the words they spoke

And it crippled me

I learned to bottle up everything inside

Until I was just a walking shell

I forged a prison for myself

And it dragged me down

But one day

With just a word from my lips

From a crack in my heart

It all came tumbling out

And it still stains my soul

But I have transcended my heavy chains

Giving me the strength to soar

So love yourself

For no matter what people say

No matter what you’re struggling with

You are gloriously more than what you believe
