I crawled inside the small cocoon
So no-one else could see,
The pain and fear I felt inside
Just wanting to be free.
To fly away, high up above
The clouds so soft and white,
To be myself for who I am
No fears when it was night.
But I am here, can't fly away
Can't stop the many tears,
Can't right the wrong from long ago
There's just so many fears.
My Inner Child is waiting
For help to come along,
To hold her hand and comfort her
And tell her that she belongs.
But the walls I built are solid still
Too high to set her free,
Can't reach her hand or hold her tight
My tears are blinding me.
I have to try and understand
To capture the truth within,
To gain the strength of who I am,
And see where I have been.
And hopefully I'll see the truth
That I did not do wrong,
And one day I'll reach out to her
And we'll both be so very strong.
