Home » My Journey » Captive


I don’t want you anymore

let me let you go

I no longer need your protection   

Please, it’s time I took the lead


I thank you for taking over

I love you for saving me

I owe you my life

for it was a life you gave me


You sacrificed yourself, 

you took my fear and anguish

and you made it your own

I could not have survived alone.



You were like an umbrella

my shelter from the storm

Like a veil, you concealed me

from the unbearable truth


But now I must control

No more jumping to the fore

All I seek is truth now

no matter the pain or cost


Once my rescuer

now you hold me captive

A slave to you still, see

you have to set me free.


Darlin’ I am safe now, 

please allow me to feel

relinquish your control

It is time for me heal.
