Within

Written by: Amber Boillot

Take me down from
Who you think I am
Pull me apart from
Everything you can
Send me to the world
You think I belong
Chain me down where
You want me to stay
Teach everyone else
To feel the same way

You need to feel me broken
You need to see hopelessness
But at the same token
There are things you’ll always miss

You can only take
What I let you
Things that you can’t force/make
Me until I decide I’m through
 
I’m learning to find within
Hope, perseverance, will
And this is where I begin
My love for them can outlast you still.
