Why can't you see,
What you do to me?
I just want to be free,
Why can't you just let me be?
These nights have been quite trying,
My heart inside feels like it's dying.
Every night I lay awake sighing,
My cheeks are stained from endless crying.
Through the years you've hurt me so much,
All I longed for was to feel your touch.
I wanted you to be my standing crutch,
But instead all I received was tears and the such.
I tried so hard but it wasn't enough,
Instead of praise you acted so tough,
I want to be free like a wild dove,
All I ask for in return is your unconditional love....
