Broken at last,
That blast from the past,
Which has held me captive,
For most my life.
I did not ask for the life I lived,
I had no way to break free,
Abuse abounded, day after day
Today, I want to be free.
Free from the bonds that hold me firm,
And keep my mind drugged so deep,
A captive of the past, those chains unspoken
I want to be free, those chains to be broken.
