“strings and freedom”
completed on 8.10.19

this can’t end as another sad song
from the fading light of what i knew
childhood memories i still pursue
an anchor that pulls so strong
a heavy weight holding on to me

for years i was broken
from shattered memories that i still hold
pain that seared through my soul
i’m starting to make myself whole
to escape the darkness of pain’s blindfold

instead of looking over my shoulder
where every line i write
tears a larger hole
i’m picking up my soul
i’ll write ’til i find the light inside me

i’m not forgetting
but i’m cutting the strings
to these hooks haunting me
to finally feel like i am free
so i can spread my wings

(chorus)
these holes may never fully heal
but i can sew these scars
cut these strings holding me
and release this weight off me
to head for the stars
