I wanted to be the pill
That you needed to heal
And change how you feel
I was swimming in the deep pool
Of lies I almost drowned

My heart crowned
The master of deceit
Many opened doors
Hoping for success,
But only failure awaited
The impediments dug deep trenches
Of hopelessness, only few
Managed to escape

The chains of self-hatred
Rusty, the padlocks
Bruised by erosion
They threw away the keys
But only few
Managed to escape

Rising above denial and doubt
Was the only key to overcoming
The hurdles and mountains
That stood before me.
