LET ME BE

Let me be, let me be free,

Blocked, hindered, halted and stalled, don't worry I understand how much you think I'm flawed,

Shut up, move on, let me be, just let me be free,

Yes, inner voice, no need to shout, I hear your words that fill me with so much doubt,

Quieten down, I'm already listening, you have my attention, you know my every move is made with apprehension?

Let me be, let me be free,

You and I can no longer live like this, all the mean words, we just don't get on, it's exhausting, all my happiness has gone.

I miss the freedom, I miss the joy, I miss the spontaneity, I'm just not sure if you realise how much your words destroy and how much you kill my creativity.

You and I should be the best of friends, after all we are in this journey together until all ends.

Let me be, let me be free.

I know what happened, I was there, I felt it, dealt with it, and have already gone through so much despair.

I need your support, I need you in my corner, not to constantly make me feel like a foreigner.

This mind, body and soul is ours, we share it, together, please care, please let me be, just let me be me.

I'm tired, I no longer want to run, I no longer want to do, do and do, I'm so done.

I just want to be, will you please just let me be me?

Stop judging, stop second guessing and begrudging, you are welcome here, if only you could make this pain disappear.

You've always made me feel like I'm never enough, you've made my life so very very tough, I've always felt like I have to do more, be more, you've stolen all of my self love.

We've already been through so much, and you know how hard it is for me to trust, we have each other, we could be friends, life could be peaceful if we could just make amends.

I'm not asking a lot, I'm not asking for more, I just want to be, because I can't do this anymore, I've always been sensitive, you know the anxiety is always there, but together perhaps we could conquer it, together we could be brave, together we might not cave.

Shut up, move on, let me be, just let me be free,

I know I'm often a mess, I know I don't always get it right, I know my faults and disorders, but can we just give up this fight?

I want to be me now, I want to feel peace, I want to feel whole again, and for all these crippling feelings to cease.

The pain that I carry is already enough to bear, please inner voice hear this prayer,

With a little compassion this might just work, what? Why the smirk?

I know, you know, we know by now that not everyone will accept, like or even get, for me it's not about that, it's not about being admired, but about feeling inspired.

I just want to be free, free to be me, just let me be.

Free to create, free to move on, free to feel peace, to feel whole, to be one.

Let me be, just let me be free to be me.
