Not Truly Free

In my head going ons are plenty

In my head thoughts run free

But the freedom ends when I open my mouth

The fear of judgment, the fear of hurt

The fear of laughter directed at me

I cry inside

I cry alone

Because I'm not free

Not letting them see that I'mA

Kept captive by my own insecurity

Hurt in the past

Unable to trust in the present

I'm not sure how

To tear down these walls

And break these chains

To be freed from my shame

To be free to be me
