It holds the soul with steel bands
With claws that sink into the soul
Chaining it in place
Sealing away the heart


A wall made by the mind
A prison of words and thoughts
Built by one’s self
Or by the acts of others

Yet freedom can be had

A simple step
Face the fear
Face the terror
Such a simple act

But such a brave act

Courage to face the relative
Courage to challenge the mirror
To believe in one’s self
To believe in hope beyond

You can do it

Take the step into the new world
Take the first act to heal yourself
Not for someone else
Not because someone said

But for yourself
