Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Finding your inner strength to break free from a controlled relationship

I'm full of anger and rage
Resigned to violent abuse
Live within this four wall cage
My child desires to break loose

You are the blood for my heart
A supply that has worn thin
As you dissect me apart
I'm unwilling to begin

I have grown weary from fights
Yet I'm unable to move
Fearful of desolate nights
Inner strength has to improve

Is the truth buried inside
Or are you afraid to find
So many things that you hide
Lost in back of your mind

As I accept denial
Forget lies I've been fed
Revive a fractured smile
Clear your space from my head

Become a distant sight
Lost to the horizon
This is our final fight
Are you ready to begin

It is time to let go
Search within your soul
The answer you know
You have lost control

You finding it hard to breathe
As control of me you lose
It's up to me when I leave
This living moment I choose

I touch my hand to her face
A setting that is surreal
Time is suspended in place
More minutes she wants to steal

Her grip is no longer tight
This moment hard to describe
As darkness turns to daylight
I've never felt more alive

New life is waiting for me
My world revolves without you
My shackled hands breaking free
Running's the last thing I do
