To Be Free

You open your eyes and look around
They are so elated, you look to the ground
Memories of happiness flood your brain
Wondering and scrutinizing, will you ever be the same?
Will the aching and pain ever subside
When will the time come to no longer hide?
I’ve buried myself inside a box
The only way to see it is to break the locks
It’s been buried so deep that I really don’t know
If it is found, will it even show?
Sometimes I forget what it used to be
Its hidden so well, I can’t even see
But if you open me up, I know you’ll regret
Everything inside of me, I’d hope you’d forget
I’m scared to open up, please don’t hurt me
But all I really want, I want to be free.
