An incessant whisper in my ear,
Constantly reminding me of everything I fear.
In your unyielding cage I am kept,
It is a prison forged from many regrets.
There are so many things I long to do,
But you keep me cooped up in my room.
Tears well up in my eyes,
Why do you enjoy watching me cry?
I think it is time you let me be.
I don’t feel free to be me.
