    ive been locked in chains but i finally broke free
    a million n one expectations grabbin my neck, chokin me
    psychological torture drivin me to break down
    problems from the past separate me from the fake clowns
    i was on low battery but im charged and back at it
    the electric waves run thru me causin major static
    thats startin a new beginnin, forcin me to determine my end
    but im livin in the moment like mad rapper eminem
    i took a break, but now im gainin momentum
    they still tryto hold me back, but i wont let them
    my standards are high n big so i gotta go get them
    my ambiguity, my obsession, my ignorance- no wonder
    but the liberty, the process and, gods deliverance never took me under

    physically restrained and mentally restricted
    the weight on my shoulders has finally been lifted
    stress is given to those who struggle, its like givin
    talent to the gifted
    trapped in a box, 4 corners confining me
    with all of my thoughts overflowin my brain, blinding me
    people tried to overthrow me when i apostasized
    i believed in people while lost in their lies
    in order to change, u gotta notice ur mistakes and go into confession
    i was runnin on the border, completely gone, unfocused, and livin in depression
    i started to gain wind once my thoughts and actions harmonized
    its just the beginning tho im still far from the skies
    for 3 years ive been tied up, 8 months ive been played with
    7 weeks ive been immobilized, 17 years ive been hated

    ive been hungry for a long time, so im ready to eat
    my life tastes life sweet n sour sauce cuz ive learned to take the bitter with the sweet
    my doubt has shriveled and my faith has enhanced
    those that never test the waters, never get the chance
    to ride the waves and swim with the sharks
    they might bite, but they bring u courage and heart
    my pen has become an instrument to my life, the choir
    listin my likes, dislikes, knowledge, and desires
    boundaries i couldnt cross, jails i couldnt escape
    until i found the integrity that took 17 years to create
    my authority's instructions were dead wrong, but hypnotic
    but the majority of people never think for themselves or follow their own logic
    so i was labeled as an outkast, but i cant help it, this is how god built me
    blame me, shame me, convict me
    but remember, im innocent until proven guilty(word)

    persistence separate the good from the great
    in order to achieve my goals i need to make
    a decision on what im trying 2 be
    i know curiousity killed tha kat but im dying to see
    my future, my life, my days, my independence
    my struggles, my happiness, my ambition- i wanna see the difference
    my insinuations tell me to leave a lot behind and reconstruct for whats to come
    many thoughts on my mind but im only lookin forward to one
    invisible cells, limited thoughts even tho there is one after another
    i had to write it down cuz i was taught to think thru others
    im in an abusive relationship- mental abuse
    my thoughts beat my brain cuz aint nothin more powerful than mental juice
    it pumps thru my brain, i think gods doin this for experimental use
    if not for that than for his own inferential use
    struggle was handed me on day 1, so ive been mournin since then
    but a new day has been brought 2 me, ive basically been born again
    tears no more, the pain has gone, and sorrow has dispersed
    i knew mama was right when she said the weak ones go 1st
    cuz im still standin, barely off the block
    takin my chances, knowin ill rarely stop

    in due time i realized in my time of living
    that the clock dont stop n the earth keeps spinnin
    buts its possible to make changes and start a new beginnin
    so i say hello to happiness and to stress good riddens
