Locked up in my shell and I don't want to break free
Ashamed of what people might think of me
So I keep this secret tucked so deep inside
Thinking the best thing to do is hide
From my truth and from my lies
Long nights and my soft cries
Oh lord why? Why was I the chosen one
Feeling like my life has ended when it really just begun
I have been put in this box without no warning
Forced to deal with a situation I wasn't born with
How can one be so cold, I'm not trying to make the same mistakes so
its time for me to be bold
Speak my truth and let it go
Learn to love myself and let the world know
I am proud to be who I am
And to walk in my shoes u have to have tough skin
Because life is not easy and you can not predict the future
I will no longer stay in this shell its been to long
3 long years it just made me strong
But I'm free now Can't you see
I'm free now do you hear me
Of my hurt and my pain
I'm ready to let go no more killing my brain
I'm free!

Free is a poem I wrote about a situation that occurred in a 3 year relationship I was in. Sometimes you lose yourself when your in a relationship and you are left with scars mentally and physically, but being Free of hurt and drama is the best feeling ever. Enjoy your life
