Scribbles and bits Challenge 41

I should have known

That you were not the right man

For me I kept ignoring all the signs shown

I just kept my head in the sand

Out of fear of being alone

I was afraid to fall

Because I was never taught to hone

In my inner strength and let go of it all

So, I could have never flown

Away from you

You were sure you kept me from becoming grown

The only thing I could do

Was to listen to you groan

I wanted to be so much more

 But because you continued to moan

More and more about how I could never soar

Through the air, I could not even reach my own

Self-confidence and I just

Continued to condone

The way you treated me and continued to trust

Eventually I began to bemoan

That I had not stood

Up to you I felt like I had blown

My chance to have a life, but a part of me knew I could



And make you atone

For making me feel so blue.


I was ready

To stand on my own

I finally felt steady

Enough to know

That you were wrong

I was ready to show you

That I am strong

Enough to fly

Without you

I could rise high

Above anything I could ever imagine

No matter how many times

You act like a dragon

Trying to cover up your crimes

By catching the on fire

I could no

Longer admire you

Because you are the one who created my woe

I had to go

As fast as I could

Back to how I was so long ago

Back when I knew, I would

Be able to see my soul aglow

And be able

To forgo

Anything you tried

To say to stop

Me, I had to face the fact that you lied

To me about what I could not do so I would drop

My dreams and listen

To you

And as I did all of me that glistened

Began to fade away

No, I would find my strength

I would find my light

No matter how many lengths

I had to go to, no how matter how hard I had to fight

I would break free from this jar

That you had me trapped

In and fly so far

Away, and I will be untapped

I will be free

From all of the negativity

Free to see

Me for who I am, and free to be me

      Nysa, hmm, I can remember that it is similar to Nightsong- it rhymes in my head, but it still will take a while
