    I want to be free. TW!


    You stole my life but I want it back,
    You've tormented me ever since the attack,
    You looked in my eyes, didn't you see?
    A girl so scared, she just wanted to be free,
    Now I sit in front of therapists, doctors and nurses,
    I let them in and repeat the same verses,
    All so they can find out why I self destruct,
    From this life, I wish I was plucked,
    I try to let death take me away,
    You tell me you'll help which is nice but wont sway,
    From this life I wish to be free,
    I want to run away, just so you won't find me,
    Why am I so scared five years on?
    If I carry on like this it's obvious you have won,
    Well one day I will be free,
    And I know that has to start with me,
    You do not control me anymore,
    So it's time I show you the door,
    I want my life back and I want it back now,
    For me, my sanity and my future, for this I must vow,
    I vow never to hurt myself in that way again,
    I vow not to be so scared of men,
    What you stole I cannot get back,
    But I will not be ruled by the attack,
    I want life and I want to be free,
    So you can leave and just let me be.

    The care and compassion I witnessed/experienced on a psych ward is something i'll never forget. Patients are often stigmatized as being dangerous but that's just not true, they are some of the most genuine and caring people I have ever met. these are only a few of the things I have seen.

    Things I have seen.


    I have seen a man so anxious he was deemed to mad for society,
    he drew me the most amazing pictures, he had so much variety, 
    I have seen a girl so distressed she was seen as a danger
    I hugged her and she calmed down, even though she was a stranger,
    I have seen girls cry over their plates reaching out to each other,
    comforting them through another meal just like a mother,
    I have seen men twice my age, 
    take me under their wing, even when I was in a rage,
    I have seen a girl sing and play guitar,
    to numb her own pain, she shone bight like a star,
    I have seen a nurse break down in tears,
    for she couldn't take away the pain held for years,
    I have seen a man bring a patient a flower,
    for she hated herself so much she couldn't even shower,
    I have seen a doctor with all his power,
    tell me he used to self harm and was a wallflower
    the things I have seen inside these walls,
    the kind and compassionate words in the halls,
    I will never forget these most genuine friends,
    in a psychiatric hospital, where it ends.
