endless pain and heartache tried to drag me away,
death tried to break down my door, and scream in my face,
beyond my control, sitting next to debree,
why's minutes turned into days, too much pain to feel free,
i lied to run away from suicides face,
claiming it was an accident in my heart to erase...
the truth, knowing everything underneath,
im not allowing death to try to claim me from being free,
what support was left? who could understand?,
who would be willing to reach out their hand?,
the love i gained in the midst of that pain,
in the taught me how to love again.
