I stand here before you
a soldier in battle with my mind
hurting in pain, pleading for my life,
yet again, time after time.
Don’t pity my sorry state
when you see me wounded and sore
Just know that I am brave
but to tell you the truth, I can fight no more.
Let me go,
I want travel to yonder land
Far from this fighting
and wars created through time.
Forever searching for a loved lost dream
I long to live and breathe free
to be liberated from these chains of misery
I yearn to follow my own destiny
