The way

The way

Eyes on the prize

because I stumble

but don’t fall

best believe I

will have it all.

Eyes on the prize

you won’t see my demise

I’m set to

rise

rise

RISE

far beyond the sky

This

is

destiny

Following Maya’s legacy

Phenomenal woman

can’t you see?

don’t give a shit style

Don’t care for your

expectations of me

Learned to let those

go.

I’m living

free

Comfortably

being me.

Savior

Savior

Strength, where

did you go?

I needed your

embrace today

 

My invisible

cloak, protecting

my dignity

Saving grace

 

Don’t go away

hide in an

unknown

treasure chest

 

I lose my way

easily, you’re a

guide from land

to sea

 

Strength, I need

you more than you

need me, but please

stay

 

If not

darkness

covers. can’t float

in over my head

 

Iron weights

on my chest

Can’t breathe

Can’t move

 

Can’ts. don’ts

scream in my

mind

I lose

 

Paralyzed

drowning

in tears, living

all my fears

 

 

Insomnia binds

Its fingers pry open

my eyes, nightmares

take control

 

Strength, I need you

to keep me safe

and make the monsters

go away
