I push, I pull, I fight
Clawing my way through darkness, Through sadness, Through hate.
I fight against the voices that echo in my head.
I rip my arms out of the clutch of memories.
Let go of me, I am no longer yours.
My feet sink into the mess of my life.
I fight, I struggle, I strive.
I reach out as I near the door way.
I can see the bright light of a new hope, A new perspective, A new life.
I scream, I cry, I break apart.
My hands clutch onto the door frame.
I pull myself free.
I slam the door behind me.
