Once I had placed you on a pedestal
but now I am telling you to go to hell,
I am breaking down the walls you put up
and I am escaping from this cell.
For too long you held me prisoner
because I believed all you had said
but now I am fighting back
and will not rest until you are dead.
Invisible to everyone else,
over the years you took control,
you thought you had won
the keys to my soul.
You prevented me from enjoying all
the special moments I should have had
by convincing me I was not worthy
and that I was going slightly mad.
You did not count on me summoning up
the strength to fight back,
that one day I would rise from my knees
to fend off your attack.
It has taken a long time
but finally my eyes have opened
and now it is you who has lost
because your influence has been broken,
your once strong voice
has been replaced by a whisper
which grows quieter with every step
I take into the future.
