couldn't rise
above
not being
loved
couldn't speak
a word
afraid truth
would be heard
couldn't show
my strength
held at
length
couldn't show
my heart
felt so
apart
couldn't share
my mind
when i was so
hard to find
couldn't produce
being so
reduced
couldn't move
to action
drowning in
distraction
couldn't lose
the shame
labels
or names
couldn't be
in the here
filled with
rage and fear
couldn't feel
joy
suspended in
the void
awkward
recluse
doubts hanging
like a noose
toxic as
a red tide
with no place
to hide
own worse enemy
no matter where
wanted to Houdini
out of there
it was
no trick
found the
magic
slipped
this skin
inside
expression
wear my
truth
accepted or
ridiculed
won't live by
another's think
up to me
if i swim or sink
in the chain
will be no kink
gonna be
the strongest link
