No More

ďI am a strong womanĒ
Is what Iíve always dreamed of believing,
But the reflection looking back at me
Isnít the truth.
So deceiving.

All I see is a tear stained face.
Trying to make you love me,
But I fall so far from grace,
You glaring above me.
Hateful words burying me.
Smothering me.
Keeping me rooted
In this false image of myself.
Youíre supposed to love me to life,
But youíre loving me to death.
Or is it love.

Thatís the shameful reality.
A prisoner of my mind.
Bound by my insecurities.
Yearning for freedom,
But youíve locked me up
And thrown away the key
Because you fear the empowering
Force Iíd be.

Itís time to stand up.
Put on my holy armor
And face the giant.
No more fear of reprocussions.
No more being quiet.
No more.
