    Took time to look inside myself
    I cried and tried to silence the rage that I've felt
    I died to the immature alibi that I let be the one
    To voice the insecurties I have yet to overcome
    Tonight the silence is eery and not quite welcoming...
    if you know what I mean
    Not quite welcoming...
    So eery feeling
    Such a lonesome feeling
    like nobody can hear me...
    is so frightening ...
    yet enlighting
    still i got to keep shining
    maybe i'm hiding the way i truly feel
    Lord, knows I feel the guilt
    Still a child inside my heart
    And so fustrated!!!!
    Trying to find a place
    Here in this world
    so back to the reality of things
    what will this lesson teach me?
    how it's effected me emotionally is evident
    yet brought on by my mistakes
    is love all it takes
    trying not to let my heart break
    yet it breaks and doesn't hesitate
    As it allows my soul to percipitate into a river
    of my reflection
    and the pieces fallen
    so i don't know where to begin
    i just don't know who i am anymore
    i want to win
    i want to overcome
    i want to begin instead of end
    i don't want to look back
    i just want a friend
    who i am inside
    not what i've tried to pretend
    no more lies
    bare naked truth
    of my desire from my youth
    i'm going to take control
    now that i'm on my own
    i've got to let you know
    that you don't know me like you used to know me ...
    i'm trying to grow
    blossoming
    beautifully
    freely
    sweetly
    illuminating
    anticipating
    watch out for me
    cuz i won't fall to my knees
    dare to dream
