Title: Prisoner in my own body

Poem: Picture a girl
So sad and blue
Picture a girl
Locked inside you
Her hands are white
From gripping the bars
She wants out
In hopes she''ll
Make it to where you are
She cries tears of red
She''s upset and hurt
It''s not her running this show
But the monster instead
You can hear her faint cries
It''s not that easy to set her free
It takes willpower and strength
That only you can see
When she is let go
She will no longer lay
She will grab that beast
She will lock him away
The voices will clear
No longer will the girl be sad and blue
The girl has finally risen
And she''s risen inside of you...
