I am the light in my darkness,
The key to my chains.
I am my own jailer,
I keep myself in prison,
With my fear,
That makes me stumble,
Be in a cell with no bars.
I need to be free,
But I must free my mind.
That’s a Herculean task.
I must stop denying my weakness,
Embrace my kryptonite,
And get strength from within.
Break the mental bars.
Be free.
Life’s too short to live in fear.
