The perception
Of a never ending cycle and feeling
Can, in itself, be devastating
Gut-wrenchingly heartbreaking
I have no other way through it
But through
The mind builds castles and strongholds
Facing them, being them, perceiving them
Until I crumble and have no place to hide
I have to walk up the stairs again
And see myself
For what I am
Even if that is disturbing for me
Now I’m here
I’m fighting
I’m holding on
I’m finally letting go
I’m finding myself to be beautiful
For what I am
So rain down on me
From the skies above
Your blessings, may Your kingdom come
