It’s Time

Living in the dark
Life drifts by so fast
I feel like I am wearing a mask which burns my heart
So much so, that I might need a bypass
The task of living in this complicated society
Wears me down to my skin and bone
I wish I could go home

I am left vulnerable in a darkened world, where everyone looks through me like I am invisible

I am in the thick of the mist and everyone is complaining that I am hypocrite
I wish I could miss these moments of despair
I wish you were there
I wish I could go back but I can’t
I wish that could have protected myself
I wish I could have spoken about the abuse
But these three empty sentence didn’t happen
They are in the past
I am powerless to change these things

It’s time to let go.
At last, I am hoping to forget the past
Finally, I have realised this after all of this time
I am ready to fly and leave the past behind
