I do not give in to the feeling I’m feeling now,
I will not take that vow,
No surrender to the whiplash of images played on the scene of my mind,
No submission to the emotional blows labeled as mines,
Forgetting what lies behind,
Squinting to see the light at the end of the line,
Struggling for some measure of control I can’t deny,
Searching for some space, just give me some time.
The pressure on my chest longing to be eased,
Only the soothing sounds of music catering to my needs.
The embrace of the father replacing my pain,
The end is worth it for in it I will gain,
Just give me room to reconnect, space,
Just let me breathe again.
