Rising On My Own

you almost stole my dream away
and sleep has already become impossible
food has become tasteless
breathing has turned into a chore
thoughts have sharpened into stabbing knives

but i’m not letting you steal
myself away from me

i do not care about your approval
anymore

i am free and i am strong
and i am enough to create
whatever my precious little heart
desires
